Oregon City Council is considering a proposed ordinance that would set the maximum age requirement to 35 for those who want to join the police department.

Residents of the Oregon City School District gave their opinions on what is wrong with the school district during a public forum Thursday at the Clay High auditorium.

The district held the forum to seek feedback on a community survey conducted in November. The survey was distributed by The Press along with the Oregon Oracle, the district’s newspaper. A total of 295 questionnaires were completed and returned. The study’s confidence level is 95 percent, which means that in 95 cases out of 100, the survey results would represent the preferences of all district residents had they all responded to the survey. The survey, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.7 percent, was conducted in collaboration with a communications consultant and district personnel.
