SECTION 20970-20971



20970.  The provisions of this article shall apply to contracts by
protection districts as provided for in Chapter 25 of the Statutes of
1907.


20971.  After the adoption of a plan of works and providing funds
for the construction of the same, and securing the necessary rights
of way as in this act provided, the board of directors shall give
notice by publication thereof not less than 20 days in one newspaper
published in each of the counties composing the district (provided, a
newspaper is published therein) and in such other newspapers as they
may deem advisable, calling for bids for the construction of such
work, or of any portion thereof; if less than the whole work is
advertised, then the portion so advertised must be particularly
described in such notice. Said notice shall set forth that plans and
specifications can be seen at the office of the board, and that the
board will receive sealed proposals therefor, and that the contract
will be let to the lowest responsible bidder, stating the time and
place for opening said proposals, which, at the time and place
appointed shall be opened in public; and as soon as convenient
thereafter the board shall let said work, whether in portions or as a
whole, to the lowest responsible bidder; or they may reject any and
all bids and readvertise for proposals, or may proceed to construct
the work under their own superintendence. Contracts for the purchase
of material shall be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder. Any
person or persons to whom a contract may be awarded shall enter into
a bond, with good and sufficient sureties, to be approved by the
board, payable to said district for its use for 50 percent of the
amount of the contract price, conditioned for the faithful
performance of said contract. The work shall be done under the
direction and to the satisfaction of the engineer, and be approved by
the board.
