A message from Bill Hall, County Commissioner

The Lincoln County Commission Wednesday approved something that is going to improve public safety and reduce homelessness. The county is purchasing two small apartment buildings in Newport that will provide up to a year of transitional housing for people discharged from our jail and the state prison system. We’ll start with a capacity of 14 beds and be able to expand to as many as 28 beds. We’ll also offer drug and alcohol treatment, parenting classes and job training.

The state is concerned about the cost of building and operating prisons, and passed the Justice Reinvestment Act, which shortens sentences for some drug and property crimes and puts new dollars into the hands of counties to help make sure people don’t end up back behind bars. I will sign closing documents at the end of the month and the program should be operational a couple of months after that.
