OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Officials in Thurston County say they’ve finally reached agreement on a way to open a jail completed in 2010.

They celebrated that progress at a Friday news conference where they signed a letter of intent to move into the building.

The Olympian reports (https://is.gd/RzJJ3R ) that County Commissioners Cathy Wolfe, Sandra Romero and Bud Blake and Sheriff John Snaza all signed the letter. It outlines a series of budget changes that will make moving into the jail possible.

Wolfe said that since the jail was finished, the county has been through a recession, workforce cuts, “many budget and fiscal challenges” and some difficult labor negotiations.

The budget changes will need to be adopted formally at an upcoming commission meeting.
