Office of the Revisor of Statutes

A city or municipal gas agency may contract for the planning, acquisition, construction,
reconstruction, operation, maintenance, repair, extension, and improvement of exploration,
production, storage, transmission or distribution facilities within or without its corporate limits or
those of its members, or may contract with other public or private owners of these facilities to
perform these functions, without advertising for bids, preparing final plans and specifications in
advance of construction, or securing performance and payment bonds, except to the extent that
its governing body determines that these actions are desirable in furtherance of the purposes of
sections 453A.01 to 453A.12. Except as otherwise provided by this section, no contract shall be
invalid or unenforceable by reason of nonperformance of the conditions required by any other law
relating to public contracts. If a payment bond is secured as provided in section 574.26, it shall be
enforceable as provided in sections 574.28 to 574.31, and no lien may be filed under chapter 514
for the furnishing of labor, skill, material, or machinery for the improvement covered thereby.
