All items supplied shall be subject to inspection or rejection by the Purchaser, by the County Agricultural Commissioner-Sealer of Weights and Measures upon the Purchaser’s request, or by the department receiving the Commodity or Service. The Purchaser’s authority to procure Commodities or services from other sources as herein specified shall not preclude the City’s exercise of any other remedies, including termination of the contract.
