Tuesday, Sept. 21, is the day two public hearings will be held to help decide if Yakima County commissioners will approve non-exclusive franchise agreements with Ted Durfey of Sunnyside and Jane Manley of Grandview. Both agreements deal with the construction of irrigation pipes, although each is in conjunction with a different project.
The non-exclusive franchise agreement application filed by Durfey is for the construction, operation and maintenance of an irrigation pipe along Emerald Road in Sunnyside.
The application filed by Manley is for the construction, operation and maintenance of an irrigation pipe along Mountainview Road in Grandview.
The public hearing for both agreements is set to take place Tuesday, Sept. 21, at 10:30 a.m. in room B33 of the Yakima County Courthouse.
