Rebonding of unpaid assessments

Subject to the prior approval of the governing body of the local government, the owner of any property assessed for local improvements under state law or under the charter of any local government, and in cases where a final assessment for local improvement has been bonded and entered in the bond lien docket as authorized by ORS 223.205 (Scope and application) and 223.210 (Right of property owners to apply for installment payment of assessment) to 223.295 (Limit on city indebtedness) or the charter and the bonded assessment has not been fully paid, may file with the auditor, clerk or other officer charged with the keeping of records of the local government an application for rebonding the original assessment in the amount due and unpaid thereon. The auditor, clerk or other officer charged with keeping the records of the local government may accept these applications. If there is more than one final assessment on the same piece of property, the owner may combine them in one application. [Amended by 1991 c.902 §77; 2003 c.802 §51]

Notes of Decisions

Fact that ordinance, which charged fee to prop­erty owners taking advantage of privilege of making connec­tion to city wa­ter system, specified that pay­ment would be secured by liens which would be “enforced” in matter provided by this chapter did not, of itself, show that such charges were “assess­ments.” Montgomery Brothers v. City of Corvallis, 34 Or App 785, 580 P2d 190 (1978)

Circuit court has jurisdic­tion to determine merits of assess­ment, but cannot address whether assess­ment is subject to constitu­tional limits on prop­erty taxes. Martin v. City of Tigard, 14 OTR 517 (1999), aff’d 335 Or 444, 72 P3d 619 (2003)

State statutory pro­ce­dures for financing local improve­ments are not exclusive and do not displace consistent local pro­ce­dures. Baker v. City of Woodburn, 190 Or App 445, 79 P3d 901 (2003), Sup Ct review denied
