Tigard Offices Closing at 3 p.m. Today, City Crews Work to Sand Roads

Due to the inclement weather, all City of Tigard offices (City Hall, Library, Permit Center, Public Works) will open to the public today (Dec. 15) at 10 a.m. and will close at 3 p.m.

Thanks to Tigard Police and Public Works staff for their efforts helping everyone get around and unstuck; officers and crews will remain on duty to ensure public safety.

City Council and evening meetings scheduled for today are cancelled and will be rescheduled.
Tigard Public Works Crews Hard at Work Sanding Priority Streets 

Crews Hard at Work Since Storm Began:

Tigard’s Public Works crews have been out on the roads since about 1:30 p.m. yesterday, and have worked through the night.

They have re-applied sand to all first and second priority roads, and approximately 30 percent of third priority roads.

Crews will continue to check all roads in the city and sand third and fourth priority roads throughout the day.

There are still many cars abandoned  throughout Tigard. Snow and ice in parking lots is still a problem; once it starts to break up we will get in and do what we can in those, as well.

Please check our map showing priority streets sanded by city crews.
