Contract Information Meetings

The City of North Bend and Sallal’s negotiation team and counsel have tentatively settled upon a mutually acceptable water supply contract. The latest version is available here.  At the April 18, 2023 board meeting, the majority of the Sallal Board voted in favor of this motion: “To approve the Agreement for the Wholesale Supply of Water with the City of North Bend in the form and substance as presently presented on the Association’s website subject to reasonably obtainable and final modifications acceptable to Associations’ Director of Finance and Administration and counsel based on board and member comments that do not alter the basic substance of the agreement.”  The contract has not been signed/executed by either party.

Why Two Meetings? The power to enter into a contract of this nature is vested in Sallal’s Board. However, at the June 11, 2019 special meeting of the members, in response to a request from a member, and according to minutes of that meeting, the Board President said that if Sallal and the City agree on contract terms, the contract will be presented and explained to the members and the Board will listen to member input via two informational meetings before signing/executing the contract.

These two contract information meetings will be held on April 24th and May 24th at 6 p.m. at Sallal’s office located at 47230 SE 144th Street in North Bend.

See the Contract Information Meetings Notice here.

At these meetings, a representative from the Department of Ecology, Department of Health, and the litigation consultant Sallal used to evaluate the risks of eminent domain/condemnation will be available to answer questions.  Sallal’s engineer will give a presentation on how the contract would be implemented by the water operators. A Board member will present the main terms of the contract, and there may be a presentation from other Board members.  Sallal’s engineer and counsel will also take questions.

The meeting notice will be mailed to all Sallal members at least 10 days in advance of the first meeting and is also available here.
