[VIDEO] Mason PUD 3 is hiring its first new line crew in nearly 40 years. Tuesday, the PUD 3 Commissioners authorized staff to use reserves to add a foreman, two linemen and purchase the necessary vehicle and equipment.
The new line crew is expected to be hired in the next month.
The PUD 3 Board of Commissioners also approved an interlocal agreement with Grays Harbor PUD that will lead to a fiber optic network intertie along Highway 108 at the county line and in the process improve broadband for those in the Hurley Waldrip area.
Both items were approved unanimously.
