Background and Analysis:

Background and analysis has not changed from first reading to second reading.

 

Ordinance No. 5350 relating to storm drainage services charges was passed in 1992.  The ordinance added a new section to OMC Chapter 13.16 pertaining to issuance of bonds for stormwater purposes. 

Staff has researched whether or not bonds were ever issued for stormwater purposes after passage of Ordinance No. 5350 and has determined no such bonds were issued.  OMC 13.16.170 is therefore a nullity without legal effect and should be repealed. 

Neighborhood/Community Interests (if known):

None known.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the Ordinance repealing OMC Section 13.16.170 on second reading.

 

2.  Direct staff to make changes to the Ordinance repealing OMC Section 13.16.170. 

 

3.  Do not approve the Ordinance repealing OMC Section 13.16.170.  This leaves a section in the OMC that is a nullity without legal effect.

 

 

Financial Impact:

None
