Douglas PUD Commission Meeting Report

The following is a report of the Douglas County Public Utility District Commission meeting, which was held on October 12, 1998.

The commissioners held the first of two public hearings regarding a proposed boat dock policy at this Bridgeport meeting. The new rules would apply to anyone wishing to construct or maintain a boat dock on the Wells Dam Reservoir (Lake Pateros). They would also apply only to future improvements since existing improvements would be grandfathered. Ten local landowners were in attendance as staff outlined the prospective rules. The landowners offered several comments and asked various questions concerning the proposed policy. A second hearing regarding the proposed policy is scheduled for the regular commission meeting at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, October 19, 1998 in the East Wenatchee Headquarters. After this second meeting, District staff and commissioners will review all comments for consideration prior to adoption of a final policy.
