Doris Sorum City Clerk A public meeting has been scheduled regarding a proposed sale to Reggie Brown of properties owned by the City of Tacoma, Tacoma Public Utilities, Light Division (d.b.a. Tacoma Power). In 2009 a number of former substation sites were declared surplus to the needs of Tacoma Power and the City. The sites, known as Ruston, Fairmount, Downing and Lincoln Park, were formerly utilized to support a 4.2kV electrical distribution system. Once the distribution system was upgraded, the sites became obsolete and were therefore no longer needed. Conveyance of these properties will not adversely affect continued efficient utility service.
