By May of 2014, a Request for Bid Specifications was sent out on behalf of LCSD. Unfortunately, after many months of negotiations with the initial bid winner, we determined that we were not able to agree on an appropriate PPA rate and escalation percentage.

The Effect of The Power Plant for LCSD: Over the past few years, questions have begun to arise about the power plant and the impact it may have upon LCSD. The Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) agreement was made in an effort to stabilize tax payments, so all parties can plan accordingly and avoid the negative affect of large swings in assessment valuation and subsequent tax payments.

Over the years, LCSD has responded by balancing the use of reserve funds, reducing our workforce and/ or programs, engaging in efficiencies ... more >>
