NORCOR May Rent Beds To State And ICE

NORCOR officials are working on having unfilled bed space at the regional jail utilized by the state of Oregon and federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  Hood River County Commissioner and NORCOR board member Ron Rivers says state officials have considered constructing a new jail, but he notes NORCOR has plenty of room.  Rivers says the state rejected a formal contract two weeks ago, but they will rent bed space on an as-needed basis beginning in the next month or so, and there will be a similar arrangement with ICE.  Rivers says the need is foreseen by state and federal officials through November, even though he hopes it can continue longer than that.  He added the four-month period could bring NORCOR about $400,000 in revenue.
