HR County Commission Says It Can Afford ID Program

Hood River County Commissioners have told supporters of a county identification card program that with its current budget issues, they aren’t in a position to establish one right now.  Gorge Ecumenical Ministries has made the proposal to establish the ID card program for those who cannot establish other forms of identification.  Commission Chair Ron Rivers says the County simply doesn’t have the resources to do this right now.  He added the Commission would probably prefer to see the ministries group do the program on their own, noting he doesn’t know if it would be sustainable for the County to operate at the levels that have been suggested.  Gorge Ecumenical Ministries has indicated to the County it has some funding to help with establishing an ID program.
