Deschutes County Commissioners will vote Wednesday on whether to approve a two year lease with the Bethlehem Inn. The Board at the shelter for the homeless had looked at buying the former motel on the north side of town, but they felt the $2 million price tag the County wanted, was overpriced. Instead they plan to sign a two year lease to pay around $2,000 a month. Chris Clouart with the Bethlehem Inn says eventually they want to move to a new location. “We are focusing strongly on trying to find another facility that we can move into. Something that’s more along the lines of what we think is a reasonable price. We've generated a real estate task force made up of some of the people in the real estate industry in the community here to help us.” If the Commissioners approve the lease, it would run until July of 2012.
