We provide street lighting to Maywood Park, Troutdale, Fairview and certain unincorporated areas of Multnomah County.

If you live in the district, you will be charged user fees through your property tax bill. No action is required on your part.

The assessment will appear on your property tax bill as Mid-Multnomah County Street Lighting Service District No. 14.

The district is governed by the Board of County Commissioners, and managed by the Department of Community Services.
