— A couple of questions are posted in the city government’s Open City Hall online forum. Officials hope to gain additional insight by Friday on issues also discussed at a public forum at city hall earlier this week.

— The council is tentatively set to meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at city hall, 380 A Ave. The agenda includes multiple contracts related to the Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership, a midyear financial review, dissolution of the community forestry commission and several study sessions, among other items. In addition, longtime Parks and Recreation Director Kim Gilmer will receive a distinguished service award and the library will be recognized by the Clackamas County Business Recycling Awards Group.


— Construction on Second Street, from A to B avenues, is set to begin Tuesday.
