City of Portland offices will remain closed Friday, Feb. 24, to prioritize health and safety during the continuing challenges of snow on the ground and below-freezing temperatures.
Winter weather resources are available, and most city services continue as usual. Thousands of employees are reporting to work to clear roads, operate parks, fight fires and attend to the most vulnerable community members, and most others are working remotely.
For more information, see the Weather and City of Portland Services webpage.
If you have additional questions, call our information line by dialing 311. Someone is available Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. (excluding federal holidays) as your single point of access to help with any questions or local government service needs within Multnomah County.
