Inclement Weather

City Employees


For those days when we experience severe weather conditions, please remember that the city’s work facilities will be open unless there is a notification of the closing via a radio or television broadcast or the employee information hotline states there is a closure – *503-526-2346.

If, as a result of extreme weather conditions, you find that coming to work would be dangerous, you may choose to not report to work. This applies only to non-public-safety positions. If you choose not to report to work, please provide timely notice to your supervisor. If you choose to report to work, please do so as soon as you can, as safely as you can.

For additional information, please see the Employee Handbook. Represented employees should refer to their respective collective bargaining agreement for further information regarding this subject matter.
