The City of Lake Oswego is continuing to provide essential services. In addition, we're developing new programs to help support the community. Updates on business assistance, community resources, City services, and COVID-19 resources.
City News & Announcements
The City is focused on doing everything we can to slow the spread of COVID-19, this includes closing City buildings to walk-in traffic to help protect staff and the community.
We're still working hard! The City will continue to provide essential services - such as police and fire protection, quality drinking water, and well-maintained infrastructure - to the people of Lake Oswego.
Lake Oswego Police Department kicks off pilot project to help reduce COVID-19 exposure.
Starting Monday, March 30, LOPD employees will be providing a free prescription delivery service for Lake Oswego residents 65-years-old or older or who have medical conditions that would put them at a higher risk.
This program will be in effect through the end of Governor Brown's "Stay Home, Save Lives" Executive Order.
The 2020 Census is underway and the most important thing you can do is respond online, by phone, or by mail.
The Census is more than a population count, it provides a snapshot of our nation. The results will show where communities need new schools, new clinics, new roads, and more services for families, older adults, and children.
It's an opportunity to shape your community's future!
In an effort to continue to promote and support our local economy during the COVID-19 crisis, the City and LO Chamber of Commerce are compiling a list of open/operating businesses throughout Lake Oswego.
All local businesses (and residents!) are encouraged to provide information about business services, including hours and delivery/pick-up options. We will compile and share. Complete the survey!
We can all help support our local economy and businesses during this time!
Temporary Changes to Trash and Recycling Service Due to COVID-19
To help protect the health of their frontline workers, Republic Services has asked us to comply with the following trash collection changes:
- All trash must be bagged and the bagged tied at the top. No loose trash can be dumped into carts.
- No Bulky Waste pickup. Everything must be contained within a cart (this can be automatically lifted into a truck without human assistance).
- Please give your driver space and avoid contact when they are servicing your property.
The City prides itself on providing safe, quality drinking water to our customers. You can rely on us to continue to deliver safe drinking water to your tap throughout the COVID-19 emergency.
Sourced from the Clackamas River, your drinking water goes through six stages of treatment and filtration at the state-of-the-art Lake Oswego Tigard Water Treatment Plant.
City of Portland Environmental Services is beginning construction of a new bridge on SW Boones Ferry Road where it crosses Tryon Creek. The new bridge will improve water flows by replacing an existing small culvert.
SW Boones Ferry Road is completely closed from SW Arnold to SW Comus Court for up to seven months.
Please follow signage to the recommended detour route. Please plan extra travel time.
