Oregon Statutes - Chapter 312 - Foreclosure of Property Tax Liens - Section 312.020 - Supervision by Department of Revenue; enforcement.

(1) The Department of Revenue shall have general supervision and control over tax foreclosure proceedings under ORS 312.010 to 312.120 and 312.130 to 312.240 to the end that such proceedings shall be conducted in a uniform and orderly manner in all counties of the state.

(2) Whenever any district attorney fails to institute or complete foreclosure proceedings in the manner required by this chapter, the department may call upon the Attorney General to institute or complete such proceedings. For this purpose, the Attorney General shall have the same powers and authority as a district attorney under this chapter. All costs incurred by the Attorney General shall be borne by the county in which the foreclosure proceedings are undertaken. Upon presentation by the Attorney General to the county governing body of a certified, itemized statement of costs, the governing body shall order payment to the Attorney General out of any available funds of the county. If no payment is made within 30 days thereafter, the Attorney General shall submit to the Secretary of State a certified, itemized statement of such costs and the Attorney General shall be reimbursed upon the order of the Secretary of State to the State Treasurer, from the county’s share of the state’s cigarette and liquor revenues.
