ORS 368.715¹
Using county funds for noncounty roads during emergency

Notwithstanding the limitations in ORS 368.031 (County jurisdiction over local access roads) or any other statute that limits the expenditure of county funds for roads, the county governing body may expend available funds on other public roads during an emergency when, as a result of a disaster such as flood or other destructive force, a county road is closed because of destruction or disrepair of the county road caused by the disaster or, if no public road is available, on private property temporarily open to public use. [1965 c.270 §2; 1981 c.153 §69]
