Douglas PUD Commission Meeting Report

Douglas County PUD Commissioners Lynn Heminger, Ron Skagen and Jim Davis executed the following actions during the January 28, 2013 Commission meeting held at the District’s East Wenatchee Headquarters office:

Authorized change order No. 2 to contract 12-14-D, construct Douglas to Rapids 230 kV Transmission Line. Delivery of steel poles was delayed so the project completion date is also being adjusted to June 8, 2013. There is no change to the not to exceed limit. (13-016)

Approved acceptance of work and payment to M.D Henry Company under contract 11-20-D, Furnish Tubular steel structures for Douglas to Rapids 230 kV Transmission Line. The four month delay of contract completion caused the pole installation contractor to incur increased costs. Those costs need to be investigated and negotiated. Therefore, the District will withhold a portion of this payment until the claim is finalized. With the exception of the delay, all work has been completed and determined to meet bid specifications. (13-017)

The next meeting of the Commission is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. February 4, 2013 at the District’s East Wenatchee Headquarters office.
