6 months after the '64 Flood:
The council also:
Accepted a bid from the Somerville Glu-Lam Manufacturers of Santa Rosa for delivery of laminated beams to roof the Vancil Street reservoir...
From: "No Increase in Taxes for City Of Fortuna"
Humboldt Beacon, Jun24, 1965, page 1

4 months before the '64 Flood:

Authorization was given Dinsmore and City Engineer John Winzler to start on the roofing project for the new city water reservoir.
