  • EUGENE/SPRINGFIELD
  • Only when our county workers
  • Live Locally
  • Work Locally
  • Play Locally
  • Raise Families Locally
  • Retire/Vote Locally
  • will County respect our Values and Attitudes

18
Home Rule Applies Since 1990
  • 1913 first attempt to form Siuslaw
    County, fails as it requires passing a
    Legislative Act
  • ???? every couple decades idea
    resurfaces, fails as no Legislative Act or Lane
    gives offer
  • 1975 Mapleton considers Siuslaw, got
    suckered, Lane offers to return coastal services
    (temp)
  • 1984 last attempt using McCall name to
    get political pull, fails to get Legislative
    passage
  • Since Oregon Revised Statutes are
    changed, extend Home Rule to forming new County

19

    office apts replaced by elected representatives
