City suspends utility late fees, shut-offs; cancels all meeting, events through March

COURTESY PHOTO - Wood Village City Hall on Northeast Halsey Street remains open with limited services, but residents are encouraged to make utility payments by mail or online. As part of its response to the still-intensifying coronavirus crisis, the city of Wood Village, in addition to closing or limiting access to public facilities, is asking citizens to take part in an Assistance Questionnaire.

City leaders issued an invitation on Wood Village's website to visit and fill out the online questionnaire.

"Here at Wood Village, we care about the safety and security of our residents and businesses," it reads. "We want to ensure that each citizen has their basic needs met and is not going without."

To fill out the questionnaire, visit the city's website at and click on "City of Wood Village Relief Efforts for Those Impacted by Novel Coronavirus COVID-19."

Here are other notices from the city related to the ongoing crisis:

• Wood Village City Hall — The building at 23335 N.E. Halsey St., will remain open to the public, but city leaders recommend conducting business with the city via telephone or email if possible. City staff has taken precautions regarding sanitation, disinfecting, and social distancing "in order to best serve the community during this difficult time."

• Donald L. Robertson Park — For the health and safety of the city and community, and based on recommendations from the governor's office and Multnomah County health officials, the playground area and basketball court will be closed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The rest of the park is open, including restrooms.

• Utility bills — The city will issue no late fees or shut-off notices for water/sewer bills in March. While payments on utility bills are encouraged, city officials understand that not everyone will be able to pay their bill on time.

• Meetings — All public meetings and events have been canceled for the month of March. The city is still planning a council meeting for Thursday, April 16, a Budget Committee meeting April 21st and a City Council meeting April 28th.
