NORCOR Board To Discuss Management Structure
The Northern Oregon Regional Correctional Facility will discuss its current management arrangement at a worksession later this month. After Brian Brandenburg stepped away as the administrator of the jail last year the NORCOR board, made up of four county commissioners from Wasco, Hood River, Sherman, and Gilliam counties, decided to use an interim structure with one of the county sheriffs overseeing the adult side of the facility and a county juvenile director doing the same for that part of NORCOR. Wasco County Commissioner and NORCOR board vice-chair Kathy Schwartz says they will evaluate the arrangement at an October 24 worksession. NORCOR is the only regional jail in Oregon.
