GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) - The Grants Pass City Council has approved $130,000 for a sobering center.

The Grants Pass Daily Courier reports (https://is.gd/U0eUna ) the proposed center would be a place where intoxicated people can be lodged until they are sober. It is not a comprehensive detox center, although guests will be advised on treatment options.

The money comes from revenue paid to the Department of Public Safety from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.

Supporters such as Grants Pass Public Safety Chief Bill Landis have set January as their goal for a grand opening. Landis says the sobering center has raised an additional $140,000 from other sources.

A 4,700-square-foot warehouse on Southwest Foundry Street has been identified as a possible location.
