ENTERPRISE — A final jail-use agreement between Wallowa and Union counties was approved Wednesday, Aug. 2, by the Wallowa County Board of Commissioners.

The agreement, which became effective July 1, replaces one Wallowa County had with Umatilla County. Before July, when Wallowa County needed to incarcerate an inmate, local deputies had to take them the 116 miles to Pendleton. Now, the trip is just 64 miles to La Grande.
