Monday, January 3, 2022. eorganizing as an Authority – Community Conversations

(January 3, 2022) — The Oak Lodge Water Services Board of Directors (Board) is seeking to reorganize the District as a Joint Water & Sanitary Authority. A Joint Water & Sanitary Authority is a type of “special district” under Oregon law that would solidify the OLWS boundary area (Oak Grove, Jennings Lodge, as well as parts of Milwaukie and Gladstone). The change will not affect the services you receive or the rate making process, which will continue to be based on cost-of-service.

Join members of the Board at an upcoming Community Conversation session to learn more.

Attend the virtual session to:

  • Learn what becoming a Joint Water & Sanitary Authority would mean for customers.
  • Ask questions about steps the Board of Directors is taking.
  • Share what’s most important to you.

Registration is required to receive a link and password to attend the session. The Community Conversations will also be recorded and made available on YouTube. If you are unable to attend and would like to receive a link to watch the recordings, email the word “ADD ME” to to receive the link to the recordings as well as updates on the reorganization process.
