A pared down Deschutes County jail expansion proposal was offered the Deschutes County Commissioners Wednesday.

 

Commissioner Alan Unger says Sheriff Blanton's proposal would basically add a "pod" on the existing facility and house 144 beds, and the cost would be shared.  "We determined with all the costs, it would cost about $10-million. And that we could fund it through a debt service that would be funded basically 50/50 with Sheriff budget funding and General Funds from the County supported by land sales in the future."

 

Unger says they  decided to do a bit more research about the proposal, but plan to again discuss and probably decide on the proposal next week.

 

Unger adds that Sheriff Blanton is ready to get moving on the  expansion as soon as he gets the go-ahead.
