Greagor won't face charges in dating website case

Assistant city manager resigned position effective June 18


The Washington County District Attorney’s office has decided not to prosecute Steve Greagor, former assistant city manager for the city of Hillsboro, after consideration of filing charges of child abuse 2 and other unspecified child sex charges.

The reasons stated in the June 5 charging decision released by the District Attorney’s office specified that “the currently known information does not support criminal charges.”

Most of the information in the District Attorney’s June 5 charging decision was redacted. While the document said there is no evidence of a crime, the District Attorney’s office stipulated that the charging decision may be revisited if additional information is uncovered later.

Greagor resigned from his position with the city of Hillsboro June 17 after 21 years of employment with the city. Greagor had served in the Hillsboro Police Department, the Parks & Recreation Department and most recently in the city manager’s office.

“I will fondly remember the myriad of ways where I have made a difference for the residents of and visitors to Hillsboro,” Greagor said in a June 17 letter announcing his resignation. “It is time for me to move on to other adventures, and I have grown tremendously over the years that I have been there.”

“Steve’s many contributions to our city have been extremely valuable, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors,” said Rob Dixon, who also serves as an assistant city manager, in a June 18 email to city employees.

Dixon said Greagor’s efforts had been instrumental in the city’s acquisition of Orenco Woods Nature Park, the construction of the Hillsboro Ballpark and the arrival of the Hillsboro Hops.

Greagor was placed on paid administrative leave April 30 after an unrelated investigation by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office uncovered his name on a dating website. That discovery sparked an investigation to determine whether Greagor communicated with an underage person on the dating website, which was supposed to be restricted to adults.

Deputy District Attorney Kevin Barton, who handled the Greagor case, could not be reached for comment as of press time.
