Crooked River Ranch Club & Maintenance Association, an active Oregon Corporation
Crooked River Ranch Water Company, an active Oregon Corporation
Jefferson County Case No: 19CV55620
Ranch Matters checked in with Water Company General Manager, Frank Day today and he confirmed the Water Company is now working with their Insurance Carrier to determine policy limits related to the lawsuit they are tasked defending.
Mr. Day added, the Water Company will be filing their Response on or before this Friday, the 13th.
INTERESTING ORS (Oregon Revised Statute), 94.662, that begs the question, was there a NOTICE REQUIREMENT obligating the Ranch Association to notify the affected homeowners prior to filing the lawsuit against the Water Co?
ORS 94.662 states in part, “At least 10 days prior to instituting any litigation or administrative proceeding to recover damages under ORS 94.630 (Powers of association) (1)(e)(E), the homeowners association shall provide written notice to each affected owner of the association’s intent to seek damages on behalf of the owner.”
