Online records are available through ORMS Webdrawer
The City of Oregon City is a member of Oregon Records Management Solution (ORMS) allowing us to increase citizen access to public records. You may search for frequently requested records such as Ordinances, Resolutions, Meeting Minutes, Agendas Packets, and other historical documents.
For you convenience we have pre-set search parameters on these frequently requested records:
Within Webdrawer you will find additional fields to refine your search. See HELP for advanced search and additional information on browsing, viewing and saving your search criteria.
You can also search within most documents after locating and downloading by keying "Control + F".

Then pick how you would like to search:

-Date Created (NOT RECOMMENDED)
-Document Content will search the entire document content. Expect a longer search time!
-Record Number (NOT RECOMMENDED)
-Title (free text part) This search is an exact match search of the Title field for a record. Not Recommended unless you have the exact title.
-Title Word will search any word in the Title field for a record- MOST RECOMMENDED! Use the wildcard * to increase your search success. For example, "Ord*" will return Ordinance, Ordinances, ORD, ordinary, order... etc.
