Deschutes County Commissioners elected Alan Unger to Chair the Board this year and Tammy Baney as Vice-Chair.

 

Unger says the Board will soon hold a goal setting session to identify what their focus will be in 2013.  "One of those things will probably be, as we look at budgets, to reevaluate employee costs. PERs has had a significant increase and so have medical costs; so how do we manage those within our budgets?"

 

Unger says as Board Chair, he's charged with making sure the meeting as well as county business runs well.

 

He says any issues or projects that come from the state will be divided up between the three commissioners.
