KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - A sobering station recently opened in Grants Pass and now another is planned in Klamath Falls.

The Herald and News reports (https://is.gd/cyeQw9 ) that Klamath County Commissioners agreed this week to dedicate $40,000 toward the proposal. The money would come from revenue generated by state beer and wine taxes.

Organizers hope the station will reduce the financial burden on the local hospital and jail, the places that now monitor intoxicated people.

Construction could begin as early as August. The sobering station would be among a number of facilities at a planned human services campus on South Sixth Street in Klamath Falls. The complex is intended to be a “one-stop” option for rehabilitation and human services.
