Douglas PUD Commission Meeting Report

The following is a report of the Douglas County Public Utility District Commission meeting that was held on August 14, 2000.

The Commissioners awarded the 2000 Distribution Sale of miscellaneous scrap and surplus metal materials to Calbag Metals Co. of Portland, Oregon. With a bid of $14,306.70, Calbag was the only firm to offer a bid for the scrap metals.

An extension to an existing agreement between Douglas County PUD and the Colville Confederated Tribes would continue the operation of the Cassimer Bar Hatchery for the 2000 – 2001 period. Recommended by staff, the Commission agreed to the extension. Used in the production of sockeye salmon, the new Cassimer Bar Hatchery Budget is not to exceed $200,827 which is a 3.8% reduction from last year’s budget.
