Services are paid for out of our taxes, whether City, County, or State.
Animal Control and Rescue
Deputies from the Sheriff’s office handle animal control. Contact the Sheriff’s office at 541-506-2580 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wild animals can be taken to the Rowena Wildlife Clinic, but talk to them first if possible to make sure your interaction with and transport of the animal won’t harm it.
Several pet clinics in the area offer emergency services, including after-hours on call veterinarians:

Mosier Fire serves about 2500 people living in a 23 square mile area, and relies heavily on volunteers.
The Mosier area lies within one of the OR Dept. of Forestry’s Forest Protection Districts. An FPD is an area within which private and some federal lands are protected from fire by ODF. In addition, a wide array of activities including – but not limited to – campfires in state forestland, burning of debris piles, and operation of equipment, are restricted seasonally to minimize the risk of wildfire; most wildfires originate with human activity.
Mosier is part of the North Dalles Unit of ODF’s Central Oregon District, which determines the timing of seasonal restrictions for land not handled by local fire department’s like Mosier’s. See the Central OR District’s website for the latest information.
Fire non-emergency phone: 541-478-3333
Mosier Fire provides EMT service for the Mosier area, so if you dial 911 for a medical issue, they’ll probably be the ones who get to you first.

Low-income residents and Spanish speakers may prefer to go to One Community Health (select your language in the lower right) for non-emergency care, since they offer a sliding payment scale based on income, and much of the staff speaks Spanish.

Snow Plow and Gravel Routes
Most, but not quite all, Mosier streets will be plowed in the even of a snowstorm. A few streets also get graveled. The County, ODOT, and the City all handle different routes, and the City uses a three-tier priority system. Learn more about it all here. For those outside City limits, this map will show you where the County plows.
Wasco County Services
The County provides a wide range of services, including elections, public health, waste and recycling, veterans’ services, and much more.
One service you might not expect the County to provide is an interactive mapping application, that lets you click on properties and other land-based elements to learn more about them. You can, for instance, find out who pays the taxes for a certain property and how it’s zoned, or which parts of the area are part of the Mount Hood National Forest, or which fire district a spot is in, or even what sort of soil an area has.
