Commissioners Could Decide on DA's Contract Tomorrow


On Wednesday, Deschutes County Commissioners will be faced once again with making a decision on a proposed labor agreement with Deputy District Attorneys. At least one Commissioner says he does not want to delay a decision any further. Alan Unger: “I’m ready to make a decision. I think that we have a good contract. We have recognized the fact that our District Attorney has changed. I think we are ready to move forward.” Last week, new District Attorney Patrick Flaherty had asked Commissioners to give him more time to meet with the Deputy's Labor Attorney. Flaherty contends the contract is not in the best interests of the County and is not legal because it impairs his authority to appoint deputies. Those Deputies had pushed for union representation and a contract that only allowed firing "for cause". The first of the month, the Chief Deputy and four others were not retained by Flaherty in the transition to his administration.
