Yesterday we sent a letter to Commissioner Randy Leonard requesting that that he move immediately to schedule a City Council hearing before the Portland Water Bureau submits the City’s revised LT2 open reservoir compliance timeline to the Oregon Health Authority. Ratepayers and the Portland City Council deserve a transparent public engagement process to discuss this important issue, rather than allowing the Water Bureau to unilaterally make a decision on this controversial $400 million issue.
He responded that he will schedule a Council hearing next Wednesday (February 1). The agenda will be posted this Friday afternoon so we will not know until then whether it will be in morning or afternoon. Please stay posted for timeline and points to consider in preparing in your testimony. Thank you!
