BEAVERTON, Ore. – In partnership with the greater community’s response to COVID-19 and as a result of ongoing increases in reported cases, the City of Beaverton will continue providing services to the public through remote and virtual interactions through at least Sunday, November 15.
The latest decision supports priorities to maintain employee health, as well as the safety of visitors. It also furthers efforts to create better consistency and more opportunities for longer-term planning in conjunction with decisions happening at the state, county and local levels.
“Community members have experienced unprecedented uncertainty and we want to provide some stability to residents and staff who are adjusting to unique family situations and ongoing changes in their own lives,” said Mayor Denny Doyle. “Beaverton has been extremely successful in our efforts to provide uninterrupted services away from offices. We remain here to help and continue to find new and innovative ways to serve our community.”
The city will continue to provide most services by phone or online, including housing and business resources, mediation and culturally-specific services, building permits and applications, utility billing and more. Library programs, city events, meetings, and other activities are happening virtually.
The city has also initiated in person-visits by appointment for passports and court services with distancing and other safeguards in place. Beaverton City Library is also offering contactless curbside pickup service and computer access at the main library, and book drops at the main library and the Murray Scholls branch are open to receive returns.
The extension is subject to change depending on circumstances. Beaverton’s Emergency Declaration will continue to be extended bi-weekly as required in response to COVID-19.
