The Committee is responsible for awarding grants on an annual basis for projects and programs that meet the criteria of the recently adopted grant criteria. The committee was established November 2, 1988 by Resolution No. 88-69. It was restructured February 4, 1998 by Commission Report No. 98-09. The committee was created as part of an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) between the City and the regional government, Metro. The IGA that created the committee also covers the operations of the Metro Transfer Station located at the corner of Highway 213 and Washington Street. Metro pay $0.50 per ton for enhancement and mitigation fee. A small percentage of this total goes into the City’s General Fund in lieu of taxes, and the rest is placed into the Metro Enhancement Fund.
The IGA was amended on April 18, 2001 to change the Committee structure to consist of the City Commission and four citizen members appointed at-large. The City of Oregon City solicits applicants from residents of Oregon City for membership on the Oregon City-Metro Enhancement Committee (OCMEC). The Mayor appoints or reappoints members for the following fiscal year. The Committee established bylaws on May 15, 2007.
