Except as otherwise provided in Section 9-2-113 of the Illinois Municipal Code, as now or hereafter amended, if such original bidder fails or refuses to enter into a contract, which shall be simultaneously executed by the district and signed by the chairman of the committee of local improvements and attested by the district's clerk under the district's seal, then the committee without further proceedings may again advertise for proposals or bids as in the first instance and award the contract for the work to the then regular lowest bidder.
