Port Moody City Hall

The City of Port Moody has developed Moving Forward: A phased plan to deliver services and programs as we adapt to the new normal during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The safety of our residents and our staff continues to be our top priority,” says City Manager Tim Savoie. “Our Moving Forward plan provides details on the kinds of services and programs that will be available with modifications as we move forward in four phases.”

The City is currently in Phase 2, which includes use of outdoor public spaces, curbside pick-up and drop-off for library books, and scheduled access to specific City facilities and programs. Phase 3, which could start in early fall 2020, will focus on increasing public access to buildings, accepting bookings for small gatherings at civic facilities, and making modifications to enable drop-in service. Phase 4 will focus on activities that involve large gatherings.

Moving Forward aligns with BC’s Restart Plan. It’s a living document that can be scaled back or adjusted to allow for new or revised direction from the Province as the pandemic continues to evolve. The City has followed, and will continue to follow, all federal and provincial recommendations and directives related to COVID-19 and public health.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has changed how the City does business, staff and Council continue to serve the needs of the community. Staff are readily available by email or phone to assist the public. The City continues to deliver essential services, and many additional services are being delivered virtually. Residents and business owners can find information, pay bills, apply for or renew a business licence, or submit a permit application online.
