Article 89. Vallejo Sanitation And Flood Control District of California Public Contract Code >> Division 2. >> Part 3. >> Chapter 1.5. >> Article 89.
The provisions of this article shall apply to contracts by
the Vallejo Sanitation and Flood Control District, as provided for in
Chapter 17 of the Statutes of the 1952 First Extraordinary Session.
(a) In all work of improvement or repair of any of the works
or property of the district and in the furnishing of materials or
supplies, when the expenditures exceed four thousand dollars
($4,000), the work shall be done by contract, and shall be let to the
lowest responsible bidder, after notice by publication in the
district pursuant to Section 6066 of the Government Code and by
posting the notice for at least five days at or near the door of the
meeting place of the board of trustees prior to the date set for
opening bids; the notices shall distinctly state the work
contemplated or the materials or supplies required; provided the
board of trustees may reject any bid presented and readvertise and
post in their discretion, and provided further, that the board may
declare and determine that in its opinion the work in question can be
performed more economically by day labor or the materials or
supplies can be furnished at a lower price in the open market, and
they may proceed to have the work done or the materials purchased
without further observance of the provisions of this section.
(b) In case of an emergency, the board of trustees may declare a
state of great public emergency and proceed to have all necessary
work done and materials and supplies furnished without regard to this
section. Any work or improvement provided for in this act may be
located, constructed, and maintained in, along, or across any public
road or highway in the County of Solano, in a manner that ensures
security for life and property, but the board of trustees shall
restore, or cause to be restored, the road or highway to its former
state as near as possible, to preserve its usefulness. If notice for
bids to let contracts will not be given, the board shall comply with
Chapter 2.5 (commencing with Section 22050).
