Notice to pay

  • receipts and entries on lien docket

The recorder of a local government shall, when installments and interest on any final assessment in the bond lien docket are due, make the proper extensions of the installments and interest on the bond lien docket and turn the same over to the treasurer of the local government. The treasurer then shall notify the property owner that the installments are due and payable, but a failure of any owner to receive the notice shall not prevent collection of the installment as provided in ORS 223.270 (Procedure for collection on default). The treasurer shall issue a receipt to the person paying the installments and interest, and shall file duplicates of the receipts with the recorder. When the treasurer returns the bond lien docket, the recorder shall make the proper entries on the bond lien docket showing the amount of each payment and the date of the payment.

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
