Troutdale declares a State of Emergency
Troutdale Mayor Casey Ryan declared a State of Emergency throughout the city Monday afternoon, March 16, in response to COVID-19.
It will remain in effect until March 31, but may be further extended in two-week increments. The decision follows similar declarations from the cities of Portland, Gresham, Wood Village and Fairview.
With the State of Emergency all non-essential city commissions, committees, task forces and events are canceled. City utility services will not be subject to disconnect or loss of service due to non-payment or delinquency during the next 60 days. Businesses in the city of Troutdale adversely impacted by the epidemic will be entitled to request any and all applicable local, state and federal assistance to help them remain viable during the emergency.
Troutdale City Hall will remain open, but in order to limit person-to-person contact and protect public health, officials ask that if you are feeling sick, do not enter a public facility. Questions can be answered at the City Hall general line, 503-665-5175. Community members can pay utility bills and court fines, as well as apply for building permits, by using the new Troutdale online payments and services portal — https://bit.ly/38S3uvT
