Greetings Everyone and Happy New Year!!As we begin this New Year we are committed to working on improving our communication with Scio and the surrounding area. One step that we have taken in this effort is our new city Facebook page. In October we started a City Facebook Page and we continue to improve our social media skills over time.What is important to know about our Facebook page is …. Our Facebook Page is a “one way mode of communication”. City staff does not engage in questions and/or discussions about our services one on one on Facebook.If anyone has a comment or concern (positive or negative) regarding city services please call Scio City Hall at 503-394-3342 or drop by City Hall, for a personal discussion, during our regular business hours: Monday - Thursday:7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Friday: 7:30 – 12:00 noonIt is also our hope to engage in an Instagram account as time allows.I hope you have found this short article useful. For more insight as to what is going on at the City of Scio continue viewing our website. You will find a lot of information about your local government right here on our city website!
