County searches for new veteran service officer

Grant County is seeking a new veteran service officer.

Funding for the position has almost doubled, and the Grant County Court plans to increase the position from 20 hours to 30 hours a week, the commissioners said at the July 26 meeting. The increase in funds comes from Measure 96, an initiative approved by Oregonians in the November 2016 election, which gives 1.5 percent of lottery funds to veteran services.
