2017 ORS 758.210¹
Policy

The legislature finds that in many areas of this state landowners, utilities and public authorities desire to convert existing overhead electric and communication facilities to underground facilities by means of special assessment proceedings. The legislature declares that a public purpose will be served and that the public welfare will be promoted by providing a procedure to accomplish such conversion by special assessment proceedings and that it is in the public interest for such conversion to be accomplished as provided in ORS 758.210 (Policy) to 758.270 (Effect of ORS 758.210 to 758.270 on existing laws and rights).
