(a)    Notwithstanding any law to the contrary as may be found in the Ohio Revised Code, the procedure set forth in this section shall be one procedure for the Electric Department to sell scrap wire accumulated by it and no longer needed for any municipal purpose; however, not the exclusive procedure. Nothing in this section shall be construed as to limit the City’s authority to dispose of the scrap wire or other miscellaneous scrap in the same manner as any other personal property as otherwise provided for in this chapter or in a manner as proscribed by policy as implemented by the City Manager and the Electric Distribution Superintendent when consented to by the City Finance Director.
   (b)    Whenever the Electric Distribution Superintendent determines that a sufficient supply of such scrap wire has accumulated to warrant a sale thereof, he or she shall give notice thereof to the Finance Director, together with a reasonably accurate description of such scrap wire.
   (c)    Upon receipt of such notice, the Finance Director shall advertise for bids to sell such scrap wire for not less than two nor more than four consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation within the City.  The City reserves the right to reject any and all bids and to waive any and all irregularities and informalities therein.  The City shall not be obligated to proceed with the sale of such scrap wire in the event that any bid is rejected or any contract is not awarded.
   (d)    Upon acceptance of the highest and best bid by motion of Council, the City Manager shall enter into a written contract with such highest and best bidder for the sale of such scrap wire, such contract to include other necessary or advisable provisions as recommended by the City Manager and approved by the Law Director.
