By SUNNY LOCKWOOD

The Utica Power Authority Board of Directors will discuss the progress being made on UPA's 2003-04 budget and will hear a report on reimbursement for Darby Fire expenses.

Although there is no new business on tomorrow night's agenda, there will be a report from the Personnel and Finance Committee on reimbursements from the state Office of Emergency Services for costs associated with the Darby Fire of 2001.

The 2001 fire, which destroyed much of UPA's flume and canal system, was the motivation for Gov. Gray Davis declaring Calaveras County to be in a state of emergency. That declaration cleared the way for the state OES to reimburse up to 75 percent of fire-related costs.

Although most of UPA's costs for the fire already have been reimbursed, OES has reviewed the final submissions and is asking the board to sign a certification document the final step before receiving OES's last reimbursement check.

Board members are expected to discuss and sign the document at tomorrow's meeting.

The board also will discuss the progress the Personnel and Finance Committee is making on the 2003-04 budget.

Additionally, the board will hear reports from General Manager Vern Pyle on the UPA operations and maintenance, and an administrative report from Tanya Bruchacek, UPA executive secretary.
