(c) Participate in updating and expanding the state's historic building inventory program.
(d) Review and comment on and allow for public comment on any National Register of Historic Places nominations of properties within the local government boundaries.
(e) Fulfill its obligation to enforce state preservation laws.
(f) Maintain the certification at audits under section (2).
(2) Every four years, the State Historic Preservation Office will audit an Oregon Certified Local Government to determine whether the city or county has maintained National Parks Service certification as provided in section (1). The State Historic Preservation Office audit will deem an Oregon Certified Local Government as either:
(a) Approved, or
(b) Approved with conditions.
(3) The State Historic Preservation Office will provide a written plan to meet Certified Local Government certification to any city or county approved with conditions.
