Klamath Vets Home Proposed

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Klamath County officials say they think their county should use a voter-approved bond measure for a state veterans home, and build the project themselves.

Outgoing Commissioner Cheryl Hukill made the announcement Wednesday night. She says after being passed over the state for the project, the county should use the bond money for a 75-bed facility on city-owned land already approved.

She says the board of commissioners should put a measure on the ballot for may to ask voters to approve the do-it-yourself proposal. The state would operate the facility.
