PUD to discuss cost-of-service model
Grant PUD’s Board of Commissioners will hold a public informational workshop on May 9 to review with staff the cost-of-service model it has adopted when planning rate increases for utility users.
However, the workshop will not be an opportunity for the public to ask questions or speak to staff and commissioners, said Chuck Allen, PUD spokesman. The workshop is a time for staff to update commissioners and listeners about the model and the research that went into it, Allen said. Citizens can make comments during the public comment period held before each of the commissioners regular meetings, he added.

Commissioners are attempting to bring the district more in line with a cost-of-service model that ties rates more closely to the actual cost of providing services to its various customers, which range from residential and commercial customers to data centers and food processors. Commissioners passed a policy in 2013 that sets a target date of 2023 to achieve more equality between the rate classes.

The workshop is at 9 a.m. in the PUD commission room at its headquarters, 30 C St. S.W. in Ephrata.
