Douglas PUD Commission Meeting Report

Douglas County PUD Commissioners Mike Doneen, Jim Davis and Lynn Heminger executed the following actions during the December 4, 2006 Commission meeting held at the East Wenatchee Headquarters building:

Opened bids submitted for bid document 06-45-D Pangborn Substation 115kV disconnect switches.  The apparent low bid was received from Southern States, LLC of Pleasanton, CA. The bids will be evaluated prior to a recommendation for contract award.

Approved a call for bids under bid document 06-50-D, 10th Street NE pole protection project.  The District desires to protect a critical pole from vehicle traffic. 

Authorized a call for bids under bid document 06-47-W, intake trash rake for the Wells Hydroelectric Project.  Trash racks used to protect the turbines from large debris, get congested with aquatic grasses which reduces the efficiency of the turbines.  The trash rake would remove the grass and debris. 

Approved an agreement with Avista Corporation for purchase and sale of power during 2007.

The next meeting of the Commission is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. December 11, 2006 at the District’s Bridgeport Office.
