The City Council on Tuesday authorized Glendale Water & Power officials to solicit bids for a major inspection and overhaul of a power generator at the Grayson Power Plant.
The gas turbine generator has been operating since 1977 and has yet to get a complete reworking due its relatively low amount of annual run time. An on-site inspection of the unit in 2001 revealed the need for a major inspection, but it has been put off to allow for the overhaul of four more intensely-used turbines.
WHAT IT MEANS
Utility officials must still return to the City Council with a contract recommendation for the work.
An ordinance that would allow the use of temporary construction frames, commonly known as story poles, without having to pull a building permit won unanimous approval from the City Council on Tuesday.
