COUNTIES - CITIES AND TOWNS - CONTRACTS - BIDS - PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
COUNTIES ‑- CITIES AND TOWNS ‑- CONTRACTS ‑- BIDS ‑- PROFESSIONAL SERVICES (1) Second, third and fourth class cities are required by RCW 35.23.352 to call for bids in connection with the purchase of professional services where the anticipated cost for such services will exceed $2,000, and this statute contains no exception to reflect the possibibility of a conflict between its requirements and a canon of professional ethics which is so written as to prohibit the members of the profession which it governs from responding to a city's call for bids for their service.
 
(2) Counties, code cities and first class cities are not required to bid for professional services and therefore, the governing bodies of such municipalities may exercise discretion in connection with this matter.
