SALE OF PUBLIC UTILITY REVENUE OBLIGATIONS TO DISTRICT EMPLOYEES (1) A public utility district is authorized by RCW 54.24.060 to sell its utility revenue obligations in such manner as the board of commissioners shall deem for the best interest of the district; under this statute, based upon an appropriate finding to this effect, utility revenue obligations may be sold privately as an alternative to a public sale following competitive bidding. (2) A public utility district may, pursuant to an appropriate resolution based on findings of benefit to the district, sell a portion of a particular issue of its revenue obligations to its employees by private sale at a rate of interest less than that offered to nonemployee purchasers so long as the employee purchasers are not officers of the district by, through, or under whose supervision the utility revenue obligations in question may have been issued.
