Change planned for PUD office


Grant County PUD plans to switch its Grand Coulee office to a drive-up service sometime early next year.

Speaking for the PUD, public affairs manager Thomas Stredwick said Tuesday that there will still be a public presence at the Grand Coulee office, but it will be through contact at its drive-up service window.

Stredwick said the target date for the switch over is Jan. 1, 2017.

Preparing for the change, the PUD plans some minor communications adjustment for its service window.

“It will be somewhat like a drive-by bank service window,” Stredwick said. “We will have a personal presence to assist people, but the front door will be locked.”

The change is partly for “security reasons,” Stredwick explained. “We have only one person in the office there, and this will provide security for them.”
