SUBJECT: Resolution #0828 to Appoint Board Member of the Western Generation Agency Board



Issue Statement

A vacancy exists on the Board of the Western Generation Agency (WGA). Attached is the
Resolution to appoint Dick Varner, Power Planning and Management Manager, to the WGA Board.

Background

The Western Generation Agency was created in 1993 pursuant to an Intergovernmental Agreement
(IGA) between EWEB and Clatskanie People’s Utility District (CPUD) for the purpose of
constructing, owning and operating an electric generation plant: the Wauna Cogeneration Project
(the Project). The Project is located at the Wauna Mill currently owned and operated by Georgia
Pacific Corporation. WGA is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of six members, with
three each appointed from EWEB and CPUD. WGA operates as a separate legal entity.

Discussion

Section 1.4 of the IGA requires the EWEB Board to appoint three representatives to the Board of
Directors of the Western Generation Agency at the first regular meeting of each year. When WGA
Board positions are vacant, the EWEB Board is responsible for appointing a replacement.

Recommendation

Due to the retirement of Ken Beeson, who was a Director of WGA, there is now a vacancy on the
Board. The attached resolution recommends appointment of Dick Varner, Power Planning and
Management Manager to fill the vacant Board position.

Requested Action

Approval of the resolution to appoint Dick Varner to the Board of Directors of Western Generation
Agency.
