County planning effort

County planning effort

Bill Penhollow, assistant executive director of the Association of Oregon Counties, talks about state funding of county services while Elgin City Councilor Marc Stauffer (right) and Malheur County Judge Russ Hursh listen at an Eastern Oregon Rural Forum in John Day Sept. 13. The often lively discussion centered on the question of how to protect rural lifestyles and services, often in the vein of government budgets and programs. Next meeting of the forum group is back in John Day at the federal building, 431 Patterson Bridge Road, at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 11. For more information, call Grant County Judge Dennis Reynolds at 575-0059.
