3). Discussion was held on rebid of the substation relocation project. Lawton explained as discussed in regular utility business at the last board meeting the pricing validity expired from Michels before we got the signed amendment from the state.  Michels and Forster both recommended a rebid of the project.  Forster has been working with CDA and they are ready to move forward upon board approval.  CDA checked with the state and they had no problem with the rebid as long as the timeline of the project is not affected. Melvin asked what the updated timeline was for the project. Lawton said the timeline is 5/1/23 to 5/1/24.  Appleman asked how long the rebid will take.  Lawton said Forster thought no longer than four weeks. Quinn moved, Nemec seconded to approve a rebid of the substation relocation project. (Carried).
