As of noon on March 20, the Molalla City Hall is temporary closed but accessible by phone or email until further notice.
"We have thought long and hard over this issue and our community seems to be self-regulating, but we believe it is in the best interest of city staff's ability to continue providing essential services to the community to close down access due to COVID-19. We are closing the doors to the public, but we continue to provide services and we remain open to your business," said City Manager Dan Huff in a press release.
The city will continue providing services to all its residents. Police are in full force and will respond and be a community resource. There are protocols in place for officers and the public. Public Works is in full force and ready to meet service demands.
The city is available to those who need a new utility service or submit a shut-off request. Utility payments need not be made in person but use the utility bill drop box in front of City Hall for payments or any submittal the device will accommodate. City staff will continue to answer emails, return phone calls and hold conference call meetings as needed.
The city continues to actively participate in the county-wide Emergency Operational Discussions.
