YourGOV is an online tool that allows residents to submit non-emergency maintenance requests for roads maintained by Multnomah County, using a smartphone, laptop or desktop computer.
Once submitted, your request is automatically delivered to the county’s Road Maintenance staff for review and routing. You can track the county’s response and resolution of your request on YourGOV’s online map.
