A requirement for certification is the adoption of a resolution expressly approving the exemption of facility property by the county and by any city in which the Facility Site is located, as follows:
Both the county and the city must adopt such a resolution if any part of the Facility Site is located in incorporated territory, but only the county must adopt such a resolution if the Facility Site is located entirely in unincorporated territory.
Authorization or approval of a written agreement described in OAR 123-690-2000 (LOCAL APPROVAL — Written Agreement) by formal resolution of the governing body of a city or county sponsor of the zone automatically fulfills this requirement for that city or county, as the case may be.
Adoption may occur at any time irrespective of when the agreement is executed or of an effective date in OAR 123-690-2000 (LOCAL APPROVAL — Written Agreement)(3) for the sake of then certifying the business firm. If, however, the resolution also substantially implements all or part of the agreement by the zone sponsor, as opposed to merely authorizing or endorsing execution of an otherwise operable agreement, its adoption must occur after the agreement’s execution and before the zone terminates.
