We will have to wait another week for a decision on a contract for the Deschutes County Deputy District Attorneys. Deschutes County Commissioners met today and the contratc was on the agenda. Commissioners are agreeing to a request by new District Attorney, Patrick Flaherty to give him another week. He wants to talk to the labor attorney representing the Deputies. He says he wants a better deal for Deschutes County. Deschutes County Administrator Dave Kanner was recommending strongly that Commissioners adopt the contract in front of them today. He is concerned that further postponements could set the stage for binding arbitration. That’s something that attorneys say usually works best for the unions. Flaherty tells KBND News the he doesn't believe a "just cause" firing clause in the contract is legal. Next week, Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney says she will be ready to make a decision , but for now all three Commissioners want to give Flaherty one more week to discuss the issue with the labor attorney representing the Deputy DA's.
