To Customers and Interested Parties:

Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) will hold a public meeting to continue discussions on "A Slice of the System (Slice)" approach for marketing BPA's Federal power. We would like to invite you to learn more about Slice, and help identify issues that need further discussion.

The meeting will be on Monday, June 8th, 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Bonneville Power Administration, 905 N.E. 11th Street in Portland. Upon entering the BPA lobby, Security personnel can direct you to the Rates Hearing Room in the 911 Building where the meeting will be held. The meeting room is on the second floor, Room 223. Those attending the meeting will need to register at the Security Desk in the 911 building lobby and show picture identification. Parking space in the area is limited, and you may want to consider using one of the pay lots in the vicinity of the building. Pay lots are located at 7th & Pacific, 7th & Holladay, and 6th & Multnomah.

To help make sure we have the right size room and enough handouts for the June 8th meeting, please call us at 1-800-622-4519 and let us know if you plan to attend. When you call, we would also like to know if you would like your name to remain on the mailing list for future meeting notices or other Slice mailings. If we do not hear from you, we will assume you do not wish to receive additional information on this subject.

Subsequent Slice meetings have also been scheduled for June 8th, June 18th, July 1st, July 23rd, and August 5th. Details of these meetings will be provided in future meeting notices.
