Clackamas County Commissioners to Hold Online ‘Coronavirus Town Hall’ This Week

In the midst on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Clackamas County commissioners have announced they will hold an online town hall centered on the county’s coronavirus actions and community recovery.

The event will be held on the Zoom platform (which allows for telephone call-in). Commissioners have used this platform in recent weeks to hold their weekly business meetings and pandemic-related listening sessions.

All five commissioners and other county staff will participate. The town hall will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, April 16 on the topic of county actions and community recovery.

“Commissioners need to hear directly from residents, customers and stakeholders to best achieve this goal,” the county said in a media release explaining the need for the town hall meeting. “They want to know: What does the county need to do to ensure our community perseveres and thrives once the pandemic is over?”

This town hall takes place after commissioners have held listening sessions on four topics related to the pandemic’s effect on the county: Local business and economic development, sheltering concerns, the county’s response to COVID-19 and and the intergovernmental response to COVID-19.

Questions and comments are still welcome on any of these topics — and anything else related to the county and the pandemic. All residents, business owners, partners and stakeholders are welcome to participate in the session.
