Jefferson County is charging $64 dolalrs a day a bed with up to ten beds available.

 

Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton told commissioners plans are on scheduled for the 144 bed jail expansion.

 

"Susan Ross and her staff and contractor Kirby Naglehout and Captain Espinoza are all moving forward on the project.  Last week we had a meeting where we discussed numerical numbering of jail cells, which is critical.  Over the last ten years as we've talked about expanding the jail, this is the first time we've talked about numbering cells, so we're getting darn close."

 

Work should be done on the jail expansion by June of 2014.
