Douglas PUD Commission Meeting Report

The following is a report of the Douglas County Public Utility District Commission meeting that was held on May 7, 2001.

The Commissioners authorized a call for bids to provide Douglas County PUD with asphalt repair and installation for the period of July 1, 2001 to June 30, 2002.
