HR County Commission Starts Service Prioritization Exercise

The Hood River County Commission conducted a worksession Monday as it begins the process of putting together a prioritization of 88 county services to reflect the community importance of each of them.  County Administrator Jeff Hecksel had made the suggestion to put together the list as the County faces budget cuts if new revenue cannot be developed.  Hecksel says the services were given raw scores by all of the Commissioners and were not put into absolute rankings.  Topping the scores after Monday’s worksession were law enforcement, managing the county forest, maternal and child health, operation of the regional jail, and tax collection.  Hecksel says the Commission’s next step is to discuss the prioritization as a group, and that will take place at the Commission’s October 21 meeting.
