awarded by entities as provided in Part 1 (commencing with Section
33000) of Division 24 of the Health and Safety Code.
Any work of grading, clearing, demolition, or construction
undertaken by the agency shall be done by contract after competitive
bids if the cost of that work exceeds the amount specified in
Section 20162, as that section presently exists or may be hereafter
amended. With respect to work of grading, clearing, demolition, or
construction that is not in excess of that amount, the agency may
contract the work without competitive bids, and in contracting the
work may give priority to the residents of the redevelopment project
areas and to persons displaced from those areas as a result of

sealed cover and shall be accompanied by one of the following forms
of bidder's security:
(b) A cashier's check made payable to the local agency.
(c) A certified check made payable to the local agency.
(d) A bidder's bond executed by an admitted surety insurer, made
payable to the agency.
Upon an award to the lowest bidder, the security of an
unsuccessful bidder shall be returned in a reasonable period of time,
but in no event shall that security be held by the local agency
beyond 60 days from the time the award is made.
(a) To the greatest extent feasible, opportunities for
training and employment arising from any contract for work to be
performed in connection with any redevelopment project shall be given
to the lower income residents of the project area.
(b) An agency with a resident population of less than 1,000
persons in its territorial jurisdiction, and with a secured assessed
valuation of not more than thirty million dollars ($30,000,000) as
shown on the 1978-79 assessment roll, may, by contract, obligate
lessees and purchasers of real property acquired in a redevelopment
project and owners of property improved as part of a redevelopment
project to give preference to training and employment, in businesses
to be conducted on the property, to residents of the project area
upon such terms and conditions as may be mutually agreed upon. In the
event that there is an agreement between the employer and a labor
organization which restricts the employer's ability to employ project
area residents, then such labor organization shall give preference
as to entry into the particular labor organization, and with respect
to employment in a business on the property, to residents of the
project area otherwise qualified.
An agency shall require each successful bidder to file
with it good and sufficient bonds, to be approved by it. The bonds
shall be conditioned upon the faithful performance of the contract
and upon the payment of all claims for labor and material in
connection with the contract. The bonds shall contain the terms and
conditions set forth in Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 9550) of
Title 3 of Part 6 of Division 4 of the Civil Code and are subject to
the provisions of that chapter.
