Message from the City Manager:
May 11, 2020
We want take an opportunity to thank our citizens and community businesses for your continued understanding as we deal with COVID-19 and the steps we have had to take to minimize risk to our citizens and employees. We recognize there are inconveniences you may have experienced because of those actions. Please know that our Mission, Vision, and Values remain in place and that customer service remains a top priority for us. If we can assist you in any way please feel free to contact City Hall by phone at 458-233-6300 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. If your request requires interaction with staff, we have procedures in place to accommodate your needs, including scheduling of an appointment if necessary, which staff can share and schedule with you via phone.
For builders and contractors working within the City, please see the attached new procedures for doing business with the City during the pandemic.
Please note we are continuing to maintain and regularly update information on our website that we believe could provide assistance to our citizens and businesses, and we encourage our citizens to continue to check for updated information and follow US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) recommendations.
As shared previously, this past year the City invested in upgraded technologies with high speed fiber installed to City Hall and a significant upgrade to our phone system. Members of the community who have participated in our virtual meetings have been able to see the advantages of these new systems. We are able to conduct our meetings through remote access video conferencing and maintain communication with and receive input from our citizens.
Our Council and Planning Commission will continue to be held remotely, with the ability for Council and Commission members to interact with our citizens during meetings via computer or phone connection. Information on how to access these meetings is available here on our website and is also provided with each meeting notice.
The City Council also recently approved a contract for a new website that will be a significant improvement from our current City website. The new website includes enhancements for everyday function and usability, as well as additional improvements and features to communicate with our citizens during emergencies. We are actively working the on the project and expect the new website to go live in August of this year. The new system will allow community members to sign up for a selection of email notifications, as well as general and emergency email notifications.
The Governor’s office has released preliminary information regarding Reopening Oregon Phase I at https://govstatus.egov.com/or-covid-19, which has also been posted to the City’s website www.cityofmillersburg.org. We are implementing plans to be prepared for the reopening of City facilities based on the guidelines and requirements. Until that time City Hall and our parks will continue to operate with the restrictions currently in place.
We appreciate your understanding during this unprecedented time. We recognize that we may have some bumps along the way as we continue to implement the changes required to deal with COVID-19 and ask for your understanding. If you have any questions or concerns please contact City Manager Kevin Kreitman, at 458-233-6301 or by email at email@example.com or Assistant City Manager/City Engineer Janelle Booth at 458-233-6302 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Together we will get through this and be a stronger and more resilient community.
