2007 ORS 456.235¹
Dissolution of housing authorities

(1) A housing authority may be dissolved upon a majority vote of its commissioners at any regular or special meeting of the commission whereof all the members of the commission have been notified. Except with the consent of the obligees of the housing authority to dissolution, no authority having outstanding bonds or indebtedness shall be dissolved unless the assets of the authority are sufficient to pay such bonds and indebtedness. A copy of the order or resolution of dissolution shall be filed with the clerk of the city or the county, as the case may be.

(2) Upon dissolution of an authority, the property and assets thereof not required for the liquidation of indebtedness of the authority shall vest in or be paid over to the city or the county for which the authority was created or, where a regional authority is dissolved, be paid over to the cities and counties in the authority in proportion to the population within each cooperating city and county according to the most recent determination under ORS 190.510 (Definitions for ORS 190.510 to 190.610) to 190.610 (Board to establish program at state institution of higher education); provided, that if the housing project be located within an incorporated city, then such property and assets shall be paid over and delivered to such city, even though the authority may have been created by a county. Any moneys so received by the clerk shall be credited to the general fund of the city or the county, as the case may be.

(3) After voting for dissolution the authority shall be dissolved for all purposes, excepting, there shall be allowed a period of not to exceed three years after said vote for the liquidation of indebtedness and final settlement of its affairs. [1953 c.716 §2; 1973 c.672 §16]

Notes of Decisions

Housing Authorities Law and ORS chapter 457, governing crea­tion of urban renewal agencies, are parallel statutory schemes, and thus identical pro­vi­sions in the two acts will be given same effect.
