News Release
Tualatin Mayor Issues Moratorium on Residential and Commercial Evictions - 04/02/20

On March 23, the Tualatin City Council issued Resolution 5488-20, declaring a Local State of Emergency throughout the City of Tualatin because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Resolution stated that COVID-19 has created a threat to public health and safety, and that the necessary public health response has caused significant economic impacts. This declaration authorizes the City Manager and Mayor to issue additional public safety and health orders related to this emergency.

On April 2, Mayor Frank Bubenik issued Emergency Order 2020-01, placing a temporary moratorium on residential and commercial evictions for nonpayment in light of the public health emergency caused by the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Oregon.

“Our community is suffering right now. Twenty percent of our workforce is employed in the hospitality and retail industries and we have over 1,600 businesses that call Tualatin home,” said Mayor Bubenik. “In addition, about 45% of our community rents. We, as a City, are doing everything we can to help.” In late March, Tualatin announced an Economic Stabilization Fund for businesses impacted most by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Emergency Order takes effect on April 2 and will remain in effect for the duration of the City’s State of Emergency.
