The Grays Harbor PUD Board of Commissioners has completed the hiring process of the utility’s next general manager. On Monday, the board passed a resolution officially naming Schuyler Burkhart to the office. Burkhart has served as the PUD Engineering Director since 2014 and will replace Dave Ward, who will retire from the PUD at the end of February.
“I am grateful to the board for their support and confidence and excited for the opportunity to serve the Grays Harbor community,” said Burkhart. “Working together, we move into the PUD’s 81st year, focusing on the safe and reliable delivery of power, telecommunications, and energy services.”
Over the next two months, Burkhart will serve as Assistant General Manager, working with Ward to transition into the leadership role that he will officially assume on March 1st.
