2017 ORS 456.233¹
Transfer of housing authority from governing body to separate board

If, pursuant to this chapter, ORS chapter 455 and ORS 446.515 (Policy to encourage settlement of disputes) to 446.547 (Mobile home and manufactured dwelling park to establish informal dispute resolution procedure), the governing body in a city or a county has declared, by resolution, that the governing body itself shall exercise the powers of a housing authority under this chapter, ORS chapter 455 and ORS 446.515 (Policy to encourage settlement of disputes) to 446.547 (Mobile home and manufactured dwelling park to establish informal dispute resolution procedure), the governing body may thereafter, by resolution, elect to transfer such powers and the authority to act as the housing authority to any other body which may be designated by this chapter, ORS chapter 455 and ORS 446.515 (Policy to encourage settlement of disputes) to 446.547 (Mobile home and manufactured dwelling park to establish informal dispute resolution procedure) to exercise such powers. The governing body of the city or county may, by resolution, transfer the powers and authority to act as the housing authority to itself. All duties and obligations of the governing body as the housing authority of the municipality shall thereafter be assumed and performed by the body to which such powers and authority are transferred. [1969 c.630 §1; 1975 c.322 §2; 1979 c.621 §17]

Notes of Decisions

“Return” of powers pursuant to this sec­tion reflects fact that assign­ment of municipal powers to independent body is delega­tion of powers, and thus county board of com­mis­sioners was authorized to reassign housing authority func­tions to itself regardless of whether those func­tions were initially retained by county board or were initially delegated to separately created county board.

Notes of Decisions

Housing Authorities Law and ORS chapter 457, governing crea­tion of urban renewal agencies, are parallel statutory schemes, and thus identical pro­vi­sions in the two acts will be given same effect.
