With Governor Brown issuing an executive order today I wanted to make sure that it was available for everyone to read. Following is a short summary of what it says and below that you will find a link to the full order, a link to Oregon Health Authority and a link to the CDC website.

We are a strong community and we care about each other. We will get through this. Please follow the executive order, stay home and when you do need to go out practice social distancing.

Culver City Hall will be closed but you can call Donna at 541-546-6494.

Public Works will be working. You can contact Kim on her cell phone at 541-678-2097.

I can be reached through email at [email protected] and will continue to update this information as needed.

Stay Home, Save Lives
