Douglas County looks north to save money on prisoners

OKANOGAN — Douglas County commissioners are weighing their options concerning the tenuous Chelan County Regional Justice Center partnership, including possibly housing some prisoners at an Okanogan facility. The current agreement between the partners — Douglas County, Chelan County and city of Wenatchee — is slated to end Dec. 31.
