ORS 530.170
Disposition of revenues from lands acquired under former statute

Revenues from lands acquired by the state pursuant to section 5, chapter 478, Oregon Laws 1939, shall be disposed of as provided by law at the time of such acquisition. However, the county court or board of county commissioners of any county from which such lands were acquired may, by resolution duly made and entered, and delivery of a certified copy thereof to the State Board of Forestry, elect to have such revenues disposed of as provided in ORS 530.110 (Distribution of revenues from lands acquired under ORS 530.010 to 530.040) (1). [Amended by 1957 c.83 §19; 2007 c.71 §173]

Notes of Decisions

Where there was not sufficient evidence from which trial court could find that plaintiffs proved by preponderance of evidence that county made election under this section, or its predecessors, for distribution of revenue from 1939 lands under 1941 formula, defendants have not violated duties in refusing to distribute funds. School Dist. 129J v. Fosdick, 68 Or App 23, 681 P2d 1167 (1984)

§§ 530.010 to 530.170

Notes of Decisions

Where county transferred forest land that it could have kept and administered for its own benefit to state "in consideration of the payment to the county of the percentage of revenue derived from such lands," county is entitled to enforce that claim and state cannot avoid its obligation to county by conveying the property to third person. Tillamook Co. v. State Board of Forestry, 302 Or 404, 730 P2d 1214 (1986)
