Section 07.06.167 Limited Public Works Process
  1. If a work, construction, alteration, repair, or improvement project is estimated to cost less than $35,000 for Limited Public Works Projects, the City may award such a contract using the limited public works process provided under RCW 39.04.155(3).  For a limited public works project, the City will solicit electronic or written quotations from a minimum of three (3) contractors from the appropriate SWR and shall award the contract to the lowest responsible bidder as defined under RCW 39.04.010. After an award is made, the quotations shall be open to public inspection and available by electronic request.

  2. For limited public works projects, the City may waive the payment and performance bond requirements of chapter 39.08 RCW and the retainage requirements of chapter 60.28 RCW, thereby assuming the liability for the contractor’s nonpayment of laborers, mechanics, subcontractors, material persons, suppliers, and taxes imposed under Title 82 RCW that may be due from the contractor for the limited public works project. However, the City shall have the right of recovery against the contractor for any payments made on the contractor’s behalf.

  3. The City shall maintain a list of the contractors contacted and the contracts awarded during the previous twenty four (24) months under the limited public works process, including the name of the contractor, the contractor's registration number, the amount of the contract, a brief description of the type of work performed, and the date the contract was awarded.
