Section 252.022 of the LGC provides an exemption of Section 252.021 of the LGC for all procurements that are necessary to preserve or protect the public health or safety of the municipality’s residents. A Municipality is therefore allowed to award a contract for the collection, hauling and disposal of solid Waste to a private Corporation without soliciting competitive bids because this activity is considered as a measure which will preserve or protect the public health. (Browning Ferris, Inc. V. City of Leon Valley.) The City of De Leon, Texas is however soliciting proposals for this activity in order to seek the best provider for this service and to ensure the best value for the Citizens of De Leon.
