Each bid must be accompanied by cash, certified, of cashier's check, or bid bond in an amount equal to at least ten percent (10%) of the amount bid, such Guaranty to be forfeited should the bidder to whom the Contract is awarded fail to enter into the Contract.

By bidding on this job, (1) Bidder waives any rights they may have under Civil Code Sections 995.660 and 995.670; and (2) Bidder agrees to indemnify and hold City harmless against any loss, expense or expenditure, including attorneys fees and costs, which City may suffer in any claim, action, suit or other proceeding that may be brought by a surety submitted by Bidder that does not meet the United States Department of Treasury's Circular 570 specifications for a surety.
