On March 16, 2020, the Chair of the Wasco County Board of Commissioners signed Order and Resolution 20-003 Declaring a Local State of Emergency and Declaring Emergency Measures. This Order and Resolution was ratified by the full Board of Commissioners at a publicly noticed meeting held on March 18, 2020. It is important to remember that while the Order and Resolution authorizes broad measures to protect public health and safety, not all measures outlined in the Resolution are currently in effect and will be invoked only when deemed necessary. Every effort will be made to keep the public informed. You can read the full Resolution by clicking here.


The Board of County Commissioners normally meets on the first and third Wednesdays of each month in Wasco County Courthouse Room #302 to conduct County business. The Board of County Commissioners is not a judicial body and does not handle criminal or civil cases.
