• Winter Snow Removal

    As the first snow flurries of 2020 begin to fall and the Douglas County Transportation Department gears up for winter operations, we would like to let you know that the COVID-19 Pandemic has introduced unique challenges to our snow and ice removal operations and may alter how we respond to this season’s weather events.  Although we have implemented social distancing, masking, and increased sanitizing protocols to minimize the potential of spreading the virus there is always the chance that portions of our crew will require quarantining.  Operations affected by required adjustments to staffing levels may include delayed plowing, altered snow-removal schedules, and increased or altered winter road closures.  Despite the potential disruptions to winter-time services, Douglas County will continue to work diligently to ensure that your roads are safe and will be prioritizing bus routes and major arterials for winter maintenance activities.

    We look forward to any input that would improve our services.  If you have any questions or comments regarding plow operations or routes, please contact Douglas County Transportation at 509-884-7173.

  • Treasurer’s Tax Relief Plan in Response to COVID-19

    In the interest of public safety, the Douglas County Treasurer has opted to maintain the April 30 deadline for property taxes and assessments.  In our largely rural county, many of our small hospital and fire districts, as well as other valuable districts that provide services to the public are often supported by property taxes alone.
