(1) When the electors of an area wish to annex to a district, they may file an annexation petition with the county board. Before the petition is filed with the county board, it shall be approved by indorsement thereon by the board of the affected district and by any other agency also required by the principal Act to indorse or approve the petition.

(2) ORS 198.800 (Formation petition) to 198.820 (Order by county board) apply to the proceeding conducted by the county board and the rights, powers and duties of petitioners and other persons having an interest in the proceedings. However, when determining whether to approve an annexation petition filed under this section, the county board, in lieu of the criteria prescribed by ORS 198.805 (Conduct of hearing) (1) and 199.462 (Standards for review of boundary changes), shall consider the local comprehensive plan for the area and any service agreement executed between a local government and the affected district.

(3) In lieu of a petition, annexation may be initiated by resolution of the district board or of the county board. Proceedings may also be initiated by any other public agency if authorized by the principal Act. If proceedings are initiated by the district board or another public agency, a resolution setting forth the matters described by ORS 198.835 (Order for formation of district in single county) shall be filed with the county board. The proceeding thereafter shall be conducted as provided by ORS 198.835 (Order for formation of district in single county) to 198.845 (Costs). However, when determining whether to approve the resolution, the county board, in lieu of the criteria prescribed by ORS 198.805 (Conduct of hearing) (1) and 199.462 (Standards for review of boundary changes), shall consider the local comprehensive plan for the area and any service agreement executed between a local government and the affected district.
