Yachats Oregon

Welcome to the City of Yachats New Site

Yachats, Gem of the Oregon Coast

Looking to the future and the next 50 years, members of the City Council opened a new chapter in the history of Yachats by hiring our first city administrator. The City’s new web site and awareness of the Trails Committee design work led to a discussion about the need for a new city logo. This topic was discussed by the council for a couple of months. A few modifications were suggested; implemented and adopted by the council at the July meeting. The new logo now appears on the city’s main web site.

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of our community, we hope you will appreciate the new design as a symbol of renewal and a celebration of all the qualities that make Yachats the Gem of the Oregon Coast.

Commons Closure - Tuesday, May 22 5/20/2018

Public Works will be installing the final connection for the Driftwood water line Tuesday, May 22nd. The water will be turned off for approximately 5 hrs. We will make every effort complete this installation by that time.

However, due to the length of time that the Commons will be without water (and restrooms) we are closing the Commons for the day. 

Thank you for your patience.

Just a reminder, there are free wood chips and wood rounds available to the public on W. 4th St. adjacent to Pontiac St.

Water Bill Payment Information Update 4/2/2018

The City of Yachats utility billing software provider, Munibilling is no longer able to enter a payment on behalf of the customer over the phone nor walk in customers. The City of Yachats and Munibilling required to comply with new PCI requirements that prevent us from taking credit card or e-pay details on behalf of the customer. This is one of the many changes implemented to protect consumers and personal identity theft.

You will need to go to: https://cityofyachats.secure.munibilling.com, either log in, or create an account and you will need the Code at the bottom of your paper bill to set up an account. If you receive an online bill, you will need to call our office at 541-547-3565 ex. 101 or 103, to get your Code.

In the near future Munibilling will be implementing an IVR (phone based) solution for customers who come into our office to pay. These are industry requirements for the customers’ security. I hope this information helps you. Thank you

Clean Sweep Dates 3/19/2018

Clean Sweep Dates June 15-17 Your Public Works & Streets Commission is once again sponsoring the annual “Clean Sweep”. It will be from Friday, June 15, through Sunday afternoon June 17. For those of you new to Yachats, it’s your time to get rid of unwanted items around the house that you no longer need or want – and since one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, there’s a good chance that someone else will pick up and use your discarded item and put it back into use. Just bring your unwanted items to the street between the 501 Building and the ballfield, and volunteers will be there to assist you with unloading.

Dahl will not be able to take all of the items we were able to handle last year, and we will publish the most current “acceptable items” list in the June newsletter. Feel free to browse the discarded items during the weekend, and you can adopt any of them for free.

City Council Vision

Our village is a place where natural resources are valued and protected, where diversity is celebrated, and where a vibrant economy and sense of community pride create and recreate a living spirit. Yachats cares not just for its citizens’ basic needs but also supports them in their efforts to excel mentally, physically, artistically, and spiritually. It is a community with an enduring sense of itself.
