Extension of assessment period


When the council considers it necessary to levy assessments upon property in an economic improvement district for longer than the period of time specified in the assessment ordinance that created the district, the council shall enact an ordinance that provides for continued assessments for a specified number of years and grants to property owners in the district the notice and right of remonstrance described in ORS 223.117 (Requirements of assessment ordinance) (2)(b) to (e). [1985 c.576 §6]
§§ 223.112 to 223.132

Notes of Decisions

Assessment ordinance is legislative decision, not quasi-judicial decision that only may be challenged by writ of review. Kozak v. City of Bend, 231 Or App 163, 217 P3d 1118 (2009)

Chapter 223

Notes of Decisions

Fact that ordinance, which charged fee to property owners taking advantage of privilege of making connection to city water system, specified that payment would be secured by liens which would be "enforced" in matter provided by this chapter did not, of itself, show that such charges were "assessments." Montgomery Brothers v. City of Corvallis, 34 Or App 785, 580 P2d 190 (1978)

Circuit court has jurisdiction to determine merits of assessment, but cannot address whether assessment is subject to constitutional limits on property taxes. Martin v. City of Tigard, 14 OTR 517 (1999), aff'd 335 Or 444, 72 P3d 619 (2003)

State statutory procedures for financing local improvements are not exclusive and do not displace consistent local procedures. Baker v. City of Woodburn, 190 Or App 445, 79 P3d 901 (2003), Sup Ct review denied
