Oregon Statutes - Chapter 565 - Fairs and Exhibits - Section 565.268 - Agreements for fair association to exercise powers of county fair board.

(1) As used in this section, a “fair association” means a corporation incorporated under ORS chapter 65 that has a board of directors with at least three members and that is authorized by its articles of incorporation to exercise the powers and perform the functions exercised and performed by a county fair board under ORS 565.210 to 565.310.

(2) If the order issued by a county court under ORS 565.265 authorizes an agreement with a fair association, the county court, before the abolition of the county fair board, shall enter into an agreement with a fair association for the management and operation of the county fair. Except as otherwise provided in the agreement, a fair association may exercise all of the powers and authority granted to a county fair board under ORS 565.210 to 565.310.

(3) An agreement between a county court and a fair association under this section may not provide for the conveyance or other transfer of public property to the fair association unless the public property is transferred as allowed by the laws of this state. [1999 c.681 §4]
