The commission also
received a monthly report
from the Sheriff’s Depart-
ment, which said there were
44 arrests in November
with 34 of those lodged
in jail. There were also
28 warrants issued, three
assaults, three thefts and
one each of the following:
DUI, possession of meth,
stalking order violation,
parole violation, driving
while suspended, criminal
trespass, criminal mischief,
disorderly conduct, custo-
dial interference and dog as
a public nuisance within the
department’s jurisdiction
area (does not include the
city of Boardman which has
its own police department).
In other business at a
Dec. 13 meeting the com-
mission heard a report from
Undersheriff John Bowles
who presented an idea to of-
fer transitional housing for
males just released from jail
or prison but still are on pa-
role or probation. These in-
dividuals are required to be
released back to the county
of conviction. Correction
Lieutenant Dan Robbins
explained that Oregon De-
partment of Corrections is
releasing inmates early to
reduce the prison popula-
tion. This however, shifts
the burden to the counties
to find places for them to
stay for up to 90 days while
they are under the county’s
Bowles said these in-
dividuals are already in
our communities, often
times moving from place
to place when they have
no family or residence. He
said it makes it harder for
parole and probation to
monitor them. Bowles said
in the past the only option
was to house these people
in local motels. Sheriff Ken
Matlack is proposing to fix
a foreclosed property in Ir-
rigon owned by the county
for use as transitional hous-
ing, with the stipulation that
no sex offenders could be
there. Because there were
several unanswered ques-
tions surrounding this topic,
Commission Chair Melissa
Lindsay requested the sher-
iff send the proposal to the
Local Public Safety Coor-
dinating Council with pos-
sible action by that group.
In other action the
commission reappointed
Don Russell to the Colum-
bia River Enterprise Zone
board, with Greg Sweek as
the alternate.
The commission also
heard that Kathy Neal had
resigned from the Morrow
County Planning Commis-
sion. Planner Carla McLane
said Bobbi Childers from
Ione had expressed interest
in being on the planning
commission, but at this
time there are no vacant
positions there. The com-
mission discussed ways
to use the at-large position
to shift representation for
current members and that
a south county member
might be resigning which
would open up a vacancy
for Childers to serve. The
Boardman vacancy created
by Neal’s resignation is still
unfilled with no interest
expressed from the com-
munity, McLane said. The
commission voted to reap-
point planning commission
members Mifflin Devin and
Rod Taylor.
In other discussion the
commission heard from
Boardman Police Chief
Rick Stokoe, who talked
about the situation regard-
ing people with mental
health issues and under
the influence of controlled
substances, who find them-
selves incarcerated. Stokoe
said these people are often
out of control but cannot
be treated because they
are under the influence. He
said in most cases they do
not belong in jail but are
there because of no other
alternatives. He said these
people cannot be housed in
the general jail population
but jails do not have the
staff to deal with the issues.
Stokoe said these people
often take up space in the
jail that needs to be used
for people who have com-
mitted a crime, but there is
no space available.
Stokoe said this is a
nationwide problem ex-
plaining that in the past
there were facilities for
detox and then that treat-
ment went away “many
years ago.” He said he met
with Representative Greg
Smith who plans to convene
a meeting between law en-
forcement and legislators to
address these issues. Stokoe
asked the commissioners to
consider drafting a letter of
support if the need arises.
Commissioner Doherty said
he would support Chief Sto-
koe’s efforts to find funds at
the state level.
