Oregon Statutes - Chapter 275 - County Lands - Section 275.316 - Notice of hearing; findings; execution of conveyance.

(1) The county clerk shall give notice of the time and place of the hearing scheduled under ORS 275.314 by publication in a newspaper of general circulation published in such county, once each week for four consecutive weeks prior to the hearing. The notice shall set forth the time and place of the hearing, the name of the applicant and a description of the lands in the proposed transfer. If no newspaper of general circulation is published in the county, notice may be given by the clerk by posting such notice in at least four public places in the county.

(2) Upon such hearing, if the governing body of the county finds that such mineral rights are of little or doubtful value and that it would be in the best interests of the county to convey such rights to the record owner of the surface rights, it may fix a minimum value for such rights and enter an order accordingly. Thereupon the governing body of the county, after receiving payment of such value, may execute and deliver the necessary deeds of conveyance. [1967 c.188 §4; 2005 c.243 §26]
