Oregon Statutes - Chapter 223 - Local Improvements and Works Generally - Section 223.270 - Procedure for collection on default.

(1) If the owner neglects or refuses to pay installments under ORS 223.265 as they become due and payable for a period of one year, then the governing body of the local government may, by reason of the neglect or refusal to pay the installments, and while the neglect and refusal to pay continues, pass a resolution:

(a) Giving the name of the owner then in default in the payment of the sums due;

(b) Stating the sums due, either principal or interest and any unpaid late payment penalties or charges;

(c) Containing a description of the property upon which the sums are owing; and

(d) Declaring the whole sum, both principal and interest, due and payable at once.

(2) The governing body may then proceed at once to collect all unpaid installments and to enforce collection thereof, with all unpaid late payment penalties and charges added thereto, in the same manner in which delinquent property taxes are collected under applicable law or, in the case of a city, in the same manner as street and sewer assessments are collected pursuant to the terms of the city charter. [Amended by 1991 c.902 §19; 2003 c.802 §13]
