This section is included in your selections.

Emergency purchases may be made by an agency when the supplies or equipment so purchased are necessary for the immediate preservation of health, welfare or the preservation of county property in a situation in which following the normal bidding procedures would be reasonably expected to further endanger health, welfare or county property under the jurisdiction and control of the county. Such emergency purchases, where they exceed the amount generally requiring the bidding procedure, shall be submitted to the Board of Supervisors for ratification at the next meeting of the Board after the purchases.
