A new lease with Central Oregon's largest homeless shelter will be in front of Deschutes County Commissioners today. The Board of the Bethlehem Inn wants to keep their options open. They have a number of challenges with the current building. One is they say they have already maxed it out and for another there is no commercial kitchen. A third point is property values have plummeted and they are not in a hurry to agree to pay the county back the $2.5 million the County paid for the building because it's not worth that now.   County and shelter officials will sit down and discuss a two-year lease which will buy some time for both parties to look at their options. The County purchased the former Econo Lodge Motel back in 2007 with the understanding the shelter would pay back the loan.
