Bed rentals continue at county jail

Deschutes, Crook County each rent beds


Deschutes and Crook counties will continue to rent beds from the Jefferson County Correctional Facility under agreements approved June 26.

The Jefferson County Commission approved an agreement with Deschutes County to rent 10 beds at the jail for $63.93 per bed, per day, giving Deschutes County the option to rent an additional five or 10 beds with 30 days' notice.

Crook County will continue to rent about 16 beds a day, at the same rate, for the 2013-14 fiscal year.

"We have a very good partnership with both Crook and Deschutes counties," said Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins, adding that the rental helps the county pay its bills at the jail. "We're not having to dig as deep into our contingency fund."
