Oregon Township is taking the necessary precautions for our customers and employees during this unprecedented time, as a result of the Covid-19 Virus. We are cutting our hours down to 9am to 11 am to serve the public, but we ask if you do not need physical interaction and are just dropping off a payment please use the drop box.

As you all know we are heading into some uncharted waters in relation to dealing with the COVID-19 crisis. Be assured that the Oregon Township will remain diligent in our efforts to plan and make sure that we can continue to provide essential services to our citizens. Right now there are quite a few unknowns that are being analyzed and discussed at many different levels. We all should heed the suggestions of our public health departments and attempt to limit our unnecessary contacts for a period of time. We understand the strain this puts on all of us, especially those of us whose job it is to serve this great community. The best way for all of us to get the most accurate public health information is at the following sites: https://www.mmdhd.org/ or https://www.cdc.gov/
There are a lot of unknowns, but if we work together to mitigate the spread we will be just fine. Please continue using good hand hygiene and social distancing.
