Deschutes County Commissioners have okayed a $900,000 loan to help pay for a jail remodeling project.  “In 1994 the average daily population was 80. Today it's more than 200. When you have that many people in a facility, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The building will become worn and improvements will have to be made. We have identified four or five projects we would like to do in the jail.”   Sheriff Larry Blanton says the loan is coming from a Sheriff’s Office Contingency Fund and the plan is to pay it back by selling real estate the County owns. Blanton says those projects include more space in the lunchroom, relocating a supervisor's office, adding more room for storing food for the inmates and evidence.   The County will soon be advertising for construction bids on this project.
