If any person fails or refuses to leave and vacate the property by the time specified in this Order, the United States Marshal's Office, alone, is authorized to take whatever action it deems appropriate to remove such person from the premises, including the use of reasonable force, whether or not the sale of such property is being conducted by a PALS. If any person fails or refuses to remove his or her personal property from the property by the time specified herein, the personal property remaining on the property thereafter is deemed forfeited and abandoned, and the United States Marshal's Office is authorized to remove it and to dispose of it in any manner it deems appropriate, including sale, in which case the proceeds of the sale are to be applied first to the expenses of sale and the balance to be paid into the Court for further distribution. The proceeds arising from sale are to be paid to the Clerk of this Court and applied as far as they shall be sufficient to the following items, in the order specified: -7-
1. To the United States Marshal or the PALS (whichever person conducted the sale as arranged by the United States) for the costs of the sale, including any expense of maintaining the Property prior to sale; 2.

Any balance remaining after the above payments shall be held by the Clerk until further order of the Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated:
