2011 ORS § 838.015¹
Establishing tax rate limit

A permanent rate limit for operating taxes within the meaning of section 11 (3), Article XI of the Oregon Constitution, may be established for a district at the same election at which the district is established or at the first election of district board members, where that election is held after district establishment. If the petition or resolution for initiating proceedings to establish the district contains both requests authorized by ORS 838.010 (Establishing district) (2), the county governing body that calls the election shall confer about the proposed permanent rate limit with the governing bodies of all counties and cities having territory in the proposed district and shall then determine the rate limit to be proposed for the district. The proposition submitted to the electors of the district for the purpose of establishing the district shall propose the rate limit specified by the county governing body. The rate limit so proposed shall be the initial permanent rate limit for operating taxes of the district within the meaning of section 11 (3), Article XI of the Oregon Constitution, if the district is established at the election.
