ORS 419A.020
County responsibility for expenses of juvenile department


The cost of maintaining a juvenile department and all expenditures incidental thereto, including traveling expenses, and necessarily incurred in supplying the immediate necessities of children, wards, youths or youth offenders while committed to the charge of a director or counselor, and all salaries for the personnel of a juvenile department and of any detention facilities maintained in the county, are payable upon the order of the board of county commissioners or county court of the county from county funds budgeted and levied for that purpose in any manner provided by law.


When two or more counties have counselors appointed to serve the counties jointly, each county shall provide funds to pay its share of the costs and expenses of the employment of counselors and maintaining juvenile departments. The method of determining the portion of such costs and expenses each county is to bear must be provided in the agreement made between the counties under ORS 419A.010 (Appointment of counselors and director) (1)(b).
