The terms of office of members of the district board of the surviving or successor district chosen under this subsection shall not be affected by the merger or consolidation.

(2) The board selected under subsection (1) of this section or ORS 198.912 (Apportionment of board members for certain surviving or successor districts) shall immediately meet as required by ORS 198.910 (Joint meeting of governing bodies of merged or consolidated districts and cities), organize as provided by this chapter and, by resolution, declare the districts merged or consolidated.

Within the jurisdiction of a local government boundary commission, the merger or consolidation takes effect as provided in ORS 199.480 (Filing of major boundary change order) (1)(c).

(3) For purposes of ad valorem taxation, a boundary change must be filed in final approved form with the county assessor and the Department of Revenue as provided in ORS 308.225 (Boundary change or proposed boundary change). [1983 c.195 §2; 1997 c.590 §3; 2001 c.138 §8]
