Oregon Statutes - Chapter 450 - Sanitary Districts and Authorities; Water Authorities - Section 450.225 - Effective date of annexation; disposition of properties in territory; liabilities and indebtedness of territory; filing of report.

(1) If the territory annexed to the district was, prior to the vote on the petition for annexation, within the limits of another sanitary district, the effective date of the annexation shall be the effective date of the withdrawal from the other district of the territory previously within its limits.

(2) Unless a plan for division of properties has been agreed upon as provided in ORS 450.215 (2), the district from which the territory has been withdrawn shall proceed to turn over to the district to which the territory has been annexed, its properties in the territory withdrawn. The provisions of ORS 222.560 shall govern the method and procedure by which such division of properties shall be made.

(3) Notwithstanding subsection (2) of this section, the district to which the territory was annexed may, in the sound discretion of its board, assume such obligations if the obligations do not bring the total of the districtís obligation above any applicable limitations prescribed by law or otherwise. When the district assumes such obligations, it shall be liable to the other district, as provided by ORS 222.520 (2)(a) or (b), at the option of the annexing district. After the district agrees to make the payments referred to in this subsection, neither the annexing district nor the annexed territory shall be charged by the other district with any future liabilities, obligations or functions of the other district.

(4) Within 30 days after the effective date of the county boardís order of annexation, the secretary of the annexing district shall file a written report with the Environmental Quality Commission, stating the name of the district and the date of the county boardís order of annexation, and shall furnish with the report a map of the district boundaries as they are after the annexation.
