Little Chats on Public Notice Lowest and Best ( No. 20 in a Series ) One of the tno:-t common forms (if public notice, or legal advertis ing. is that which invites bids on such things as public works, im provements. equipment and sup plies. Usually the notice specifies that tli>' bids must be sealed, sets a time limit when they must be filed, in some cases calls for the filing of a performance bond, and gives other details. Such a public notice serves several puposes. It publicizes the intention of a branch of the government or other public or semi public agency. In particular, in the kind of situation in question, it aims at comparative bidding as in highway improvements or school building contracts. There is no guarantee, of course, that such legal advertising will produce bids. It happens sometimes, too, that the bids are nearly or actually identical. But the law generally gives authority to readvertise where the bids exceed the estimate or are otherwise unacceptable. The law often gives discretion also for the acceptance, by the proper authorlies. of the "low est and best" bid. The lowest bid may not be the best bid. every thing considered, and the best. conversely, may not be the lowest. It is a major part of the function of the public notice, pub lished in a bona fide n> \\spaper of paid general circulation, to bring out Ihe "lowest and best" bid. This is of cxat imp >.mice to the public which pay> the bin.-,. It is of importance ais,> to interested parties, include: bidders themselves. Trues- cf ttu Elected president MAYNARD - Mrs. \V.
