Oregon Statutes - Chapter 545 - Irrigation Districts - Section 545.617 - Sale of land for delinquent assessments; district as purchaser; payment of proceeds into emergency fund; purchase price paid by district.

The district shall appear as a bidder at the sale of any lands for delinquent assessments made under ORS 545.565 to 545.621, and may purchase and take title to the lands and dispose of them like any other purchaser. On any sale by the district, the proceeds from the sale, after the payment of expenses of the sale, shall be paid into the emergency fund. When at a tax sale there is no other bidder for the full amount of the delinquency, including interest and penalties, the district shall bid and buy in the land to protect its assessments.
