The flood of 2008 ravaged this public building. The reconstruction of this building following the flood included a complete renovation and expansion. The project changes the layout to provide better customer service and improves access for the public, protects against future flood threats, meets pre-flood space needs, and reduces the lifetime operational cost of the building by using energy efficient and sustainable building practices.
Approximately 130 people work in departments located in this building, including the Board of Supervisors, Auditor’s Office, Civil Attorneys, Finance and Budget, Human Resources, Linn County Assessor, Planning and Development, Purchasing / Mail Room, Recorder’s Office, Risk Management, and Treasurer’s Office.
The name honors Jean Oxley, the first woman supervisor in Linn County, and her contributions to Linn County during her 24-year tenure.
