NOTICE OF ELECTION

NOTICE OF ELECTION – CITY OF OREGON CITY

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Recorder of Oregon City has received a proposal from the Oregon City Commission to expand the City’s boundaries by approximately 0.46 acres in the southwest side of the City, generally located on S. Columbine Court, south of South End Road. The City Recorder has determined that the proposal contains only one subject, as required by section 1(2)(d), Article IV of the Oregon Constitution.

NOTICE IS FURTHER GIVEN that the Oregon City Commission has submitted the following ballot title for the proposal for the May 20, 2014 Election:

BALLOT TITLE

MEASURE NO. 3-437

CAPTION: Measure approving annexation of 0.46 acres into Oregon City.

QUESTION: Shall 0.46 acres along S. Columbine Court, south of South End Road be annexed into the Oregon City city limits?

SUMMARY: Annexation is the legal process to bring property into the city limits. Because of a failing septic system, Steve and June Taylor, the applicants and property owners, have asked the city to bring one 0.46 acre parcel of land located at 19328 S. Columbine Court into the city limits.

The annexation area is located within Oregon City’s Urban Growth Boundary and is contiguous to property already located in the city limits. The property is currently zoned County FU-10 and will retain its FU-10 designation should annexation be approved. No development of the subject property is proposed. The City Commission has concluded that the proposal meets all state, regional and City requirements for annexation into the City and services can be adequately provided to the property.

The City Charter requires voter approval of annexations. A map showing the parcel is included.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Recorder of Oregon City has received a proposal from the Oregon City Commission for a measure authorizing Oregon City to issue Library General Obligation Bonds. The City Recorder has determined that the proposal contains only one subject, as required by section 1(2)(d), Article IV of the Oregon Constitution.

NOTICE IS FURTHER GIVEN that the Oregon City Commission has submitted the following ballot title for the proposal for the May 20, 2014 Election:

BALLOT TITLE

MEASURE NO. 3-435

CAPTION: City of Oregon City Library General Obligation Bond authorization.

QUESTION: Shall Oregon City issue up to $6 million in general obligation bonds to renovate and expand the Oregon City Library? If the bonds are approved, they will be payable from taxes on property or property ownership that are not subject to the limits of sections 11 and 11b, Article XI of the Oregon Constitution?

SUMMARY: Approval of this measure authorizes the City to issue up to $6 million of general obligation bonds to pay capital costs related to renovation and expansion of the Oregon City Library at the Carnegie Center, including costs related to the bonds. The City intends to pay debt service on the bonds from revenues already available to the City and does not intend to levy property taxes to pay the bonds. Approval of this measure will allow the City to finance the library renovation and expansion with general obligation bonds, which have a lower interest rate than alternative financing mechanisms. The bonds may be issued in one or more series. Each series will mature in 20 years or less.
