The City is assessing the situation on a daily basis, and any updates will be made as necessary.
In response to continuing concerns about the health of customers as well as staff, though City offices are now open, we ask that all visitors wear masks and observe proper distancing.
Customers wishing to pay utility bills or municipal court fines by cash or debit/credit cards are asked to use the drive-though at the former Umpqua Bank building on the corner of Bay Street and Highway 34, where a staff person will be present at the window from 9 to 12 a.m., and 1 to 4 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday. Those who wish to pay by check are encouraged to either mail it in, or to use the white drop box in the parking lot at City Hall. On-line payments can be made by clicking the “Pay My Utility Bill Online” link on the City’s website at www.waldport.org, and you can pay by phone by calling (800)701-8560. (Note that on-line and telephone payments are subject to a processing fee.)
City staff are available by telephone and email, and individual meetings may be scheduled by contacting the City at (541)563-3561 and choosing the appropriate extension.
The Waldport Library is now open. Hours are from 10 to 4 Monday thru Friday, and 11 to 4 on Saturday. Masks are required, and visits are limited to 30 minutes. Curbside delivery is also available by calling (541)563-5880, or by email or going online to the Library’s website.
Meeting schedules have resumed, and the City will be following state guidelines to maintain transparency and to ensure that citizen participation will be available for any necessary meetings that will be held, such as Council meetings, Budget Committee meetings, etc. Please be prepared to wear face coverings and some meetings may reach capacity. Please call ahead to reserve a seat if you are concerned. We highly encourage watching the streamed proceedings when available, and submitting electronic or written comments for the record.
Please continue to use the best practices for your own individual needs during this situation. If you are sick, we ask that you stay home. If you are over 60 years of age or have a compromised immune system, please use your judgment about going out in public for any reason.

The safety of our residents and visitors is our highest priority. We will be implementing additional measures if needed as this situation evolves.
