The MULTNOMAH COUNTY HOME RULE CHARTER [Amendments Approved November 8, 2016], states:
“12.40. Appointment of Committee Members.
The charter review committee shall be composed as follows:
You can read the Multnomah Law Library Report at the PSU CPS website:
“This report reviews the current operations of the Multnomah Law Library and makes recommendations, based on best practices, for ways to restructure the Multnomah Law Library into a self-help center to better serve pro se litigants.”
The report’s full title: “Building the 21st Century Legal Resource Center and Law Library: A Report on the Current Status of the Multnomah County’s Law Library and Recommendations for Addressing the Needs of Current Patrons”
Intriguing recommendation that might come out of the OSB HOD meeting on November 2, 2012:
“Resolved, The House of Delegates recommends that the Board of Governors study the feasibility of making a metropolitan court district combining the resources of Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties to increase access to justice and make an appropriate recommendation to the Oregon Legislature, the Oregon Judicial Department and the Chief Justice.”
For those who might be wondering – as I still am:
1) You can find Resolution A at the Multnomah County website simply by entering Resolution A into the seach box.
2) You can also search Portland Online. It’s not easy to find Resolution A, but you can find references to it. Let us know if you can find a direct link. We should be able to presume that the Multnomah County Resolution A is the same as a City of Portland one, and everyone does refer to it as an “agreement between Portland and Multnomah County,” but … I can’t find a version with signatures from both entities. It’s possible there was sign-off at a 1983 meeting or that things were done differently back then or simply that I don’t know enough about these inter-governmental agreements (IGAs), which is most likely. On a regular workday, I’d just phone the city auditor’s office to ask. We all have much to learn about how laws are made!
