THE DRAIN CODE OF 1956 (EXCERPT)
Act 40 of 1956
280.242 Extension of time on contract; forfeiture; reletting unfinished portion; recovery of excess cost.
The commissioner shall have power to grant a reasonable extension of time for the completion of any contract. When any contract shall not be finished within the time specified, or to which it may be extended, the commissioner shall declare such contract forfeited and shall, within a reasonable time thereafter, relet the unfinished portion thereof to the lowest responsible bidder, by public letting, after not less than 5 days' notice thereof, by posting only, as provided for the letting in the first instance, or by private letting when such can be done, at a price per rod for the uncompleted portion thereof not exceeding the price per rod at which the job was first let; and he shall make contract and take security in each case as herein provided. The cost of completing such part over and above the contract price, if any, and the expense of notice and reletting shall be collected by the commissioner of the parties first contracting or of their bondsman, which moneys, when so collected, shall be deposited with the county treasurer, and placed to the credit of such drain.
