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).
