Deschutes County Commissioners have given the go ahead for $900,000 to be spent on minor remodeling of the County Jail. The money will be taken from a jail contingency fund and eventually replaced by future land sales. “We have identified about four or five projects that we would like to do in the jail, that we would like to maintain our existing facility and do a couple of small things to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the facility.” Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton says the money will be used to expand kitchen and evidence storage, as well as the size of the lunchroom and relocate a supervisor office. Voters rejected a $44-million bond six months ago to double the capacity of the jail and Blanton says this minor remodeling is needed now to improve efficiency.
