Oregon Statutes - Chapter 276 - Public Facilities - Section 276.246 - Repair, replacement and reconstruction of buildings, appliances, fixtures and furniture damaged by fire.

In case of the loss of or damage to any public building of this state or any state institution, educational or otherwise, by fire, or in case of the loss or damage by fire to the apparatus, fixtures, appliances or furniture of any such building, the Oregon Department of Administrative Services may, upon the application of the proper authority or authorities in charge of the building, apparatus, fixtures, appliances or furniture, showing the nature, character and amount of the loss, authorize the immediate reconstruction, rebuilding, repairing or replacing of the buildings, apparatus, fixtures, appliances or furniture. The Secretary of State shall audit and allow all claims therefor, not exceeding in the aggregate an amount specified by the department, in the same manner as other claims against the state are audited and allowed and shall issue certificates of indebtedness therefor. Such certificates shall bear legal interest from date until paid. In no case shall the expenditure of a larger sum be authorized, permitted or made than the actual loss or damage sustained, as shown by the certificate of a competent person or persons appointed by the department to appraise the amount of the damage. [Amended by 1953 c.259 §3]
