Douglas PUD Commission Meeting Report

Douglas County PUD Commissioners Jim Davis, Lynn Heminger and Mike Doneen executed the following actions during the February 24, 2003 Commission meeting held at the East Wenatchee Headquarters building:

Authorized a letter agreement with BPA relating to the Nine Canyon Wind Project. This agreement documents a plan of service for the transfer of Douglas and Okanogan PUDs’ shares of output from the Nine Canyon Wind Project from BPA’s load control area to the Douglas PUD load control area, which includes Douglas and Okanogan Counties. (03-27)

Terminated an agreement for interagency services with the North Central Educational Service District. This agreement was established to coordinate the deployment of fiber-optic services to Douglas County school districts. Fiber-optic service is now available to each Douglas County school. (03-28)

Canceled amendments to the agreements for professional services with EDAW, Inc. and Hamer Environmental. Regionally light winds during the fall and winter of 2002 have caused the District to postpone biological studies while additional wind data is accumulated for potential wind generation sites.
