LAKEVIEW, Ore. — Lake County’s Board of Commissioners have decided to work with Harney County in submitting comments on the BLM’s sage grouse environmental impact study.

The counties are hiring a professional consultant to help present their side, and splitting the costs.

There’s a 90-day public comment period underway, and a public meeting on the subject will be held in Lakeview on Monday. The sage grouse issue has been called the “spotted owl of the desert.”
