Oregon Statutes - Chapter 199 - Local Government Boundary Commissions; City-County Consolidation; Local Regulation of Shopping Carts - Section 199.458 - District assessments prohibited when commission services not used; increase in assessments for county and cities.

(1) Notwithstanding ORS 199.457 (4) to (7), a boundary commission created under ORS 199.425 shall not levy the assessments authorized by ORS 199.457 (4) to (7) upon a district when the district has not utilized the services of the commission during the two fiscal years immediately preceding the fiscal year for which the assessment would otherwise be levied. As used in this section, “utilized the services of the commission” means processing a boundary change or application under ORS 199.464 through the commission by means of either the regular or expedited process.

(2) For any fiscal year, when any district assessment is limited by operation of subsection (1) of this section, the boundary commission shall increase the assessment under ORS 199.457 (4) against each city with a population exceeding 85,000 and the county in order to obtain the amount of revenues lost to the boundary commission by reason of the assessment limit imposed by subsection (1) of this section. The increase in assessments authorized by this subsection shall be assessed against the county and each city with a population exceeding 85,000 in the same proportion as the population of the city or county bears to the total population of the unincorporated area of the county and of all cities with a population exceeding 85,000.
