Government Center protests

 

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — There were protests Tuesday in front of the Government Center during the Klamath County Commissioners weekly meeting.

A dozen protestors around 10:30 a.m. pointed MyBasin.com to Fabrice Dolce, the man leading the protest against Klamath Falls having just one Coordinated Care Organization.

Dolce showed MyBasin.com a bin with over 14,000 signatures regarding their cause.

The Oregon Health Policy Board website lists two CCOs for Klamath County: Cascade Health Alliance and PacificSource Community Solutions Coordinated Care Organization Central Oregon Region, the latter most likely servicing northern Klamath County.

On the County Commissioners agenda, there was one item pertaining to health, stating the “approval of amendment No. 15 to the intergovernmental agreement for financing of public health services between the state of Oregon, Oregon Health Authority and Klamath County.”

Another agenda item was for public comments on the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement and KHSA Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement. Members of the Klamath Tribes were protesting while Klamath Tribes Vice Chairman Don Gentry attended the meeting.
