The Grays Harbor PUD have named their choice of a new General Manager.
In a release, the local utility announced that their board of commissioners introduced a resolution on Monday to offer the position to Engineering Director Schuyler Burkhart.
They say that the plan is to formally approve that resolution at the first board meeting of January.
Burkhart would replace current manager Dave Ward, who will retire at the end of February.
Burkhart joined the PUD as Engineering Director in March of 2014, according to the utility.
Prior to that he served as a senior supervisor of the Tacoma Power Transmission and Distribution section.
