The Deschutes County Sheriff's Department plans to move forward with renovations at the Department in a couple weeks. Captain Ruth Jenkin says the expansion and renovations were expected to cost nearly a million dollars, but bids came in lower: “We thought it would come in around $900,000, but it came in around $637,000- $638,000. The price came in cheaper than we thought and that's a good thing for us.” The project will expand the personnel dining room, and the kitchen and evidence storage areas. Work is scheduled to get underway on May 1st and will be done by the end of the summer. It is being paid for through Sheriff's Department savings and a loan from the Deschutes County Board of Commissioners.
