Bill Heil with Hood Canal Electric was available to answer questions regarding a request to install a 50 Amp electrical service at the waterfront park for one4 of Jan’s Vendors to connect a piece of equipment. Jan relayed that particular vendor was not quite sure if they were definitely participating in the event for various reasons.
