Media and Interested Parties


Clackamas County Commissioners are seeking interested residents to serve on county Advisory Boards and Commissions (ABCs). These ABCs offer residents the opportunity to become very involved in specific activities and the goals of Clackamas County.

New ABC openings from the past week include:

Applicants are required to be residents of the county. The time commitment and training includes attending mandatory board member training for one day in January, and tax appeal hearings that will be held Monday through Thursday from Feb. 1 through (potentially) April 15, depending on the volume of tax appeals filed. Board members are compensated for the hearings that they attend. Applicants will also be asked to attend an interview with County Clerk Sherry Hall. The deadline for applications is Thursday, Aug. 18, at 5 p.m. For more information, please contact BOPTA Deputy Clerk Michael Newgard at 503-655-8662.

  • Board of Property Tax Appeals (BOPTA): This board has eight openings, each of which has a one-year term ending June 30, 2017. Members of the board will hear property tax appeal petitions and make decisions on those appeals that will influence tax rolls in the county. More information can be found on the BOPTA webpage.

Individuals interested in these opportunities can apply online or via a paper form that can be obtained from the Public & Government Affairs Department by calling 503-655-8751 or in person at the Public Services Building at 2051 Kaen Road in Oregon City.
