City Notes

WATER PARTNERSHIP — A contractor working for the Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership was scheduled to conduct some geotechnical investigations at the Waluga Reservoir today using a backhoe. The information will help with making future water quality improvements at the facility.

BIKE TOUR — About 25 people, including some city councilors, participated in Lake Oswego’s April 7 bicycle tour of heritage and century trees, according to the city. Councilor Jeff Gudman attended the ride kickoff, and Councilors Mike Kehoe and Skip O’Neill participated. The event helped launch the city’s 100 Mile Challenge.

CHALLENGE — The city’s 100 Mile Challenge is underway for 2013. The challenge offers information, tools and incentives to encourage people to leave their cars at home and instead walk, cycle, take the bus or use other forms of car-free transportation. For more information, visit www.ci.oswego.or.us/sustainability/100-milechallenge.

ACC — The Lake Oswego Adult Community Center has been struggling to keep up with rising demand for its Meals on Wheels program while needing more funding and volunteers. The federal government’s budget sequestration could make the situation worse, cutting some money to the program for homebound seniors and disabled people. According to the city, a 4.5 percent cut will be applied for the 2014 fiscal year.

WATER SYSTEM LEAKS — The city’s public works water operations program recently completed a leak detection survey. Including additional work completed last year, about 200 miles of pipes have been checked in all. Two service line breaks were discovered along with four possible main line leaks and 14 leaking hydrants. Repairs will be scheduled as time and funding allow, according to the city.

VOLUNTEER BOARD OPENINGS — Positions are open on multiple city advisory boards. April 30 is the deadline to apply for a seat on the city Historic Resources Advisory Board or the Natural Resources Advisory Board.

Information about the boards and applications are available online at www.ci.oswego.or.us/boc/boards-commissions-vacancies.
