Oregon Statutes - Chapter 545 - Irrigation Districts - Section 545.643 - Contract providing plan of liquidation; resolution; investigation by and approval of Water Resources Commission.

An irrigation district desiring to become a party to any contract providing a plan for the liquidation in any manner of all or part of its outstanding bonded or other indebtedness, whether then due or not due, may adopt the procedure provided by ORS 545.643 to 545.667. The procedure provided by ORS 545.643 to 545.667 is in lieu of other procedures provided by law. Before becoming a party to a contract under ORS 545.643 to 545.667, the board of directors shall adopt a resolution substantially describing all the terms and conditions of the proposed contract and requesting the Water Resources Commission to make an investigation of all matters relating to the district, with particular reference to the ability of the district or the landowners in the district to perform the obligations of the proposed contract. Upon receipt of a copy of the resolution, the Water Resources Commission shall conduct the investigation, which shall include all physical, economic and financial matters relating to the district and the irrigable acreage of each legal subdivision or other described tract of land if held in separate ownership. If, after the investigation, the Water Resources Commission determines that the contract may prudently be executed by the district, the Water Resources Commission shall advise the district of its determination by adopting a resolution of the commission to that effect.
