Establishment of permanent tax rate limit at time of formation

If a district is to impose operating taxes, a permanent rate limit on operating taxes within the meaning of section 11 (3), Article XI of the Oregon Constitution, shall be established for a district at the same election at which the district is established. If the petition or resolution for initiating proceedings to establish the district contains a proposed permanent rate limit, the county governing body that calls the election shall confer about the 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 permanent rate limit for operating taxes for the district within the meaning of section 11 (3), Article XI of the Oregon Constitution, if the district is established in an election that is in compliance with section 11 (8), Article XI of the Oregon Constitution.
