Questions included in election
(1) The Higher Education Coordinating Commission shall include as a part of the election called for formation of a district the question of a permanent rate limit for operating taxes to finance the district’s share of operating and capital expenses. The rate limit shall be specified by the commission as a result of its study and the hearing held under ORS 341.055 (Hearing). The commission may also include the question of incurring indebtedness to pay organizational expenses of the district between the time the district is approved and the first budget is adopted. If the question of incurring indebtedness is approved, the district may borrow money on its negotiable, short-term, promissory notes in an aggregate amount not to exceed the limit approved at the election and may, notwithstanding ORS 294.338 (Compliance with Local Budget Law required prior to expenditure or tax certification), expend the money without the preparation and adoption of a budget.
(2) In preparing its first budget, the board of the district shall provide for the repayment of the indebtedness incurred for organizational expenses under subsection (1) of this section. [1965 c.129 §2; 1969 c.673 §10; 1971 c.513 §77; 1995 c.67 §7; 1997 c.541 §380; 2013 c.747 §55]
