County to continue transportation program for local veterans


July 13, 2022

Linn County will continue a highly successful medical transportation program for veterans, even after a grant from the Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs runs out next spring, Commissioners Roger Nyquist, Sherrie Sprenger and Will Tucker agreed Tuesday, July 5.

“After all, these veterans gave us all of the freedoms we had today,” Nyquist said.

Veterans Services Officer Dee Baley-Hyder told commissioners the grant is for $11,000, and in her department has expended more than $5,300 the first two quarters of this year. About $6,331 remains, which she hopes will last until June 2023.
