Dear Beryl ,

Due to the State of Emergency, Public Information Officers have been called to perform other essential tasks which prioritize the City’s actions to slow the spread of COVID-19.  Only employees critical for day-to-day operations are able to access City of Portland buildings.  Consequently, your public records request will be paused due to the declared emergency (ORS 192.329(6)).  The City will try to fill this request as resources become available.  Thank you for your understanding.
