Text of measure
Question on the ballot:
Shall the City of Johnson City annex into the
Clackamas River Water District?
Annexes the entire city limits of Johnson City into the
Clackamas River Water District (District) as of July 1, 2013.
Johnson City currently obtains its water from the Clackamas River
Water District. Even though Johnson City is surrounded by the
boundaries of the District, it is not a part of the District. Annexation
into the District would result in little change for the residents of the
City of Johnson City, except it would ensure continued water supply
for the residents of Johnson City from the District and allow the
citizens of Johnson City an opportunity to participate in the District
This measure would expand the boundaries of Clackamas River
Water District (CRW) to include all of the territory within the City
of Johnson City, Oregon (City). Although the City is surrounded
by CRW, the City is not a part of CRW. Water for City residents is
currently supplied by CRW; annexation into CRW would make City
residents also residents of CRW and it would be more difficult for
CRW to cancel water service. On February 14th the Board of CRW
adopted a resolution approving the request of the City to annex into
the CRW, so the annexation is welcomed by CRW.
Annexation into the CRW would result in little change for the
residents of the City, except it would ensure continued water supply
for the residents of the City from the CRW and allow the citizens of
Johnson City an opportunity to participate in the CRW. City water
service will be maintained largely as it is provided today.
The City Council has determined that it is in the best interests of
the residents of the City and CRW to request the CRW and voters
of the City to annex the City into the CRW and, therefore, has
placed this measure before the voters of the City.
