Important to evaluate all plans

It is rewarding to see recent letters from Snohomish County residents about some of the projects being planned by the PUD to generate electricity.

Perhaps this will awaken more citizen concern for trends within the PUD for other projects that have not been well planned. A review and scrutiny of the need and costs for other pet projects already in progress may prove informative. There may not have been enough oversight for such things as rate increases to provide for the expenditures and general costs to fund such projects. Is there a misuse of the public trust? Maybe not.
