In 1997, the Eugene City Council adopted an ordinance that requires telecommunications companies to:
Compensate the public for their private commercial use of public property
Pay a business tax to fund technology investments which meet emerging telecommunications needs in the Eugene community
Under Ordinance 20083, no person may, without first being registered with the city and then paying the fee required, engage in any telecommunications activity through a communications facility located in the city. To initiate registration, please contact the telecommunications manager.
