Portland is a unique community committed to providing a safe home for our citizens, efficient and effective government and a focus on family.

Every other year, the City of Portland conducts a citizen survey to gauge opinions and satisfaction on everything from street repair and parks to public safety and economic development. The survey was conducted in February and March, and the results are now in.

Infiltration & Inflow Study

UPDATE: On March 26, the "smoke" testing phase of the I & I Study was completed. 

During the next few months, the City of Portland will conduct a Sanitary Sewer Infiltration & Inflow (I&I) Study to address any deficiencies in the system on a proactive basis.

The study does involve a “smoke test,” which is not harmful to pets or humans. However, it is proven method of identifying and locating problems in the system.

Get the details on the study and related field tests here.


Mosquito Control Program


The City of Portland sprays for mosquitoes throughout mosquito season. We encourage residents to implement mosquito control efforts at their own homes as well.

View the city’s schedule for spraying, as well as other information about safeguarding you and your family from mosquitoes here.
