July 15 - Council approves reservoir agreement (from Porltand Tribune):

The City Council approved a plan to preserve the three open reservoirs in Mount Tabor if they are disconnected from the water distribution system Wednesday — but postponed the final decision to actually disconnect them until next month for technical reasons.

The plan was spelled out in a resolution calling for the reservoirs to be restored and preserved in their historic appearance, including maintaining water in them at traditional levels most days of the year. The resolution was negotiated by the Water Bureau and the Mt. Tabor Neighborhood Association, which represents the area that includes Mount Tabor and the reservoirs.

The resolution commits the council to spending $4 million to restore the reservoirs over the next four fiscal years, and to consider spending an additional $1.5 million to restore the historic lights at two of them.
