Staff has informed the Commission that the items appearing on this consent agenda are not disputed. Staff and the companies have no disagreement with the proposals. No members of the public have expressed interest in these items.
 
To provide more time to discuss controversial or disputed issues, the Commission will consider the items on the consent agenda together at the beginning of the public meeting. If a member of the public requests to be heard on one of these items, the Commission will remove the item from the consent agenda and consider that item individually.
 
The staff analysts and recommendations are available on request from the Commission office and on PUC’s Web site (http://www.puc.state.or.us). The staff memoranda are generally available on the Thursday prior to the public meeting. Additional copies will also be available at the meeting.
