  • policy

The Legislative Assembly finds that the provisions of ORS 199.476 (When petition for major boundary change required), 221.031 (Petition to incorporate), 221.040 (Hearing on petition to incorporate), 221.061 (Election expenses), 221.106 (Prohibitions related to signing of incorporation petition), 221.735 (Continuation of collection service after incorporation) and this section are necessary to provide for the orderly incorporation of territory adjoining existing cities. However, the Legislative Assembly does not intend that the incorporation of such territory affect the authority of special districts to enter into agreements with cities newly incorporated under ORS 199.476 (When petition for major boundary change required), 221.031 (Petition to incorporate), 221.040 (Hearing on petition to incorporate), 221.061 (Election expenses), 221.106 (Prohibitions related to signing of incorporation petition), 221.735 (Continuation of collection service after incorporation) and this section for the performance of functions, services and activities by the district within the boundaries of the city. [1981 c.890 §1]
