2017 ORS 450.825¹
Plan for sewage disposal and drainage to be developed by authority

As soon as practicable after the election of the first members of the board, the board shall make a study and survey of the existing sewage disposal facilities and systems in the authority and of its sewage disposal needs, both present and future, and prepare an overall coordinated plan for the authority which incorporates, so far as practicable, existing sewage disposal and drainage systems, future sewage treatment plants, including connecting trunk and lateral sewers, and future drainage systems. Such plan shall be revised from time to time as circumstances may require. In preparing the plan or revisions thereto, the board shall take into consideration expected fluctuations in population and in business and industrial activity. [1955 c.614 §28]

Notes of Decisions

Though sewer authority alleged statutory responsibility for planning sewer systems precluding county from adopting conflicting sewer policies in its comprehensive plan, county had authority, under ORS 197.175 (Cities’ and counties’ planning responsibilities), consistent with state-wide planning goals to adopt its own policies relating to sewer systems.

Notes of Decisions

Where city with home rule charter enacted ordinance imposing franchise fee on sanitary authority for use of city’s rights-of-way, ordinance operates concurrently with state law and is not preempted.
