stolen and abandoned cars found near the boat ramp in the Williamette river at the Oak Grove Blvd ramp in Fair Oaks, a suburb of Portland in 2013

Oak Grove residents built the boat ramp years ago without permission from the county, and county commissioners want to avoid responsibility for it.

The county closed the ramp in October 2013 after Clackamas County Sheriff's deputies found six abandoned cars in the river.

The commissioners could close the ramp or choose not to invest in it anymore if they don't like the results after a year or so. Department of Transportation and Development Director Barbara Cartmill stressed that the county is not on the hook for the ramp at all.

"We take no responsibility for that or acknowledge it," Cartmill said. "It's very hands off from the county perspective."
