Our Commissioners

The PUD is administered by five commissioners from three commissioner districts. One member is elected from each of the three commissioner districts every two years to serve for a term of six years, and one member is elected every two years from each of the two at-large commissioner districts to serve for a term of four years.

The commission establishes policy, approves plans, budgets and expenditures and reviews the District's operations. The legal responsibilities and powers of the District, including the establishment of rates and charges for services rendered, are exercised through the commission.

Public commission meetings are held the first and third Mondays of the month, in the boardroom of the Wenatchee Headquarters Building.

Commissioner Dennis Bolz accepts his Lifetime Achievement Award from the Washington Public Utility Districts Association.
