2017 ORS 222.915¹
Application of ORS 222.840 to 222.915

The provisions of ORS 222.840 (Short title) to 222.915 (Application of ORS 222.840 to 222.915) do not apply to proceedings to annex territory to any city if the charter or ordinances of the city conflict with or are inconsistent with ORS 222.840 (Short title) to 222.915 (Application of ORS 222.840 to 222.915). [1967 c.624 §12; 1971 c.673 §5]

Notes of Decisions

Where statutory pro­ce­dure provided by ORS 222.850 (Definitions for ORS 222.840 to 222.915) to 222.915 (Application of ORS 222.840 to 222.915) was initiated by area residents, and local board of health adopted resolu­tion requesting Health Division to investigate area condi­tions, this sec­tion did not deprive division of authority to order that, without vote of electorate, city would be re­quired to annex adjacent area, based upon finding of danger to public health. Pieper v. Health Division, 288 Or 551, 606 P2d 1145 (1980)

Notes of Decisions

These pro­vi­sions authorizing the state Health Division to order annexa­tion to a city or territory within which there exist condi­tions dangerous to the public health do not constitute an unlawful delega­tion of legislative power. Kelly v. Silver, 25 Or App 441, 549 P2d 1134 (1976)

These sec­tions apply even though an area is served by an existing sanitary district. West Side Sanitary Dist. v. Health Div., 42 Or App 755, 601 P2d 858 (1979), aff’d as modified 289 Or 417, 614 P2d 1151 (1980)

As agency ac­tions under these sec­tions do not involve decisions concerning land use, ORS 197.180 (State agency planning responsibilities), requiring adherence to state-wide planning goals in planning and other ac­tions by state agencies, is inapplicable. West Side Sanitary Dist. v. Health Div., 42 Or App 755, 601 P2d 858 (1979), aff’d as modified 289 Or 417, 614 P2d 1151 (1980)

Notes of Decisions

Provisions of this chapter do not require final decisions on small tract annexa­tions to be made in quasi-judicial pro­ceed­ings rather than by popular vote. Stewart v. City of Corvallis, 48 Or App 709, 617 P2d 921 (1980), Sup Ct review denied
