Tillamook County Courthouse reopens Monday
Tillamook County was in the final stage of office space cleaning Friday, in preparation for reopening the facility next week. The courthouse closed Nov. 8 after an unknown odor raised concerns.
Air testing results found levels of particulates in top floor courthouse office spaces above the Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended levels.
The county is taking all necessary precautions and following the recommended steps to ensure the courthouse is safe before reopening. Cleaning of the HVAC system concluded Wednesday.
The courthouse reopens at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, November 18.
The closure could affect residents looking to pay property taxes. Until the courthouse reopens to the public, tax payments can be put in the mail, paid online or paid by phone. The county will extend the Nov. 15 due date one business day for each business day we were unable to be in the courthouse to accept property tax payments. For more info, contact Tillamook County.
