(1) In order for a rural health care facility to be exempt from tax under ORS 307.804, prior to the construction, addition, modification or installation of the facility the governing body of the county in which the facility is to be located must, by ordinance or resolution, authorize the exemption provided under ORS 307.804.
(2) Within 10 days following adoption of the ordinance or resolution that authorizes the exemption provided under ORS 307.804, the county governing body must give written notice of the authorization of the exemption to:
(a) Each taxing district located in the county; and
(b) The county assessor.
(3) The notice must state that:
(a) The county has authorized the exemption provided under ORS 307.804; and
(b) The exemption will apply to the taxes of the local taxing district receiving the notice if that district elects to authorize the exemption under subsection (4) of this section.
(4)(a) A local taxing district that receives a notice described in this section may elect to authorize the exemption within 180 days of the date of the notice.
(b) The governing body of a taxing district makes an election by passing an ordinance or resolution stating that the taxing district is authorizing the exemption.
(c) A taxing district making an election shall mail copies of the ordinance or resolution in which the election is made to the county governing body and to the county assessor within 10 days of the date the election is made.
(5) A county that has authorized exemptions provided under ORS 307.804 may revoke authorization by repealing the ordinance or resolution described in subsection (1) of this section. Authorization revocation under this subsection does not affect the continued exemption of any rural health care facility that has already qualified for the exemption, but a rural health care facility that has not qualified for an exemption as of the date of revocation may not qualify for an exemption after the date of revocation.
