Douglas PUD Commission Meeting Report

The following is a report of the Douglas County Public Utility District Commission meeting which was held on March 29, 1999.

For the past several years, Douglas County PUD has been operating under an agreement with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, No. 77. The commissioners authorized the execution of a new agreement with the I.B.E.W., which will cover the period of April 1, 1999 until March 31, 2002.

There are various projects involving the use of miscellaneous conduit, vaults, electrical and concrete work that will need to be completed in the near future. The commissioners approved a call for bids to provide these materials for the period ending March 31, 2000. The agreement is not to exceed $300,000 and the bid has a provision for an optional one-year extension.
