Local and Regional Government Programs
Six Rivers is a shining example of collaborative government. Six Rivers serves the five county region of Oregon ‘s Hood River, Wasco, Sherman, Wheeler and Gilliam Counties. Six Rivers contracts with Sherman County, Wasco County and the City of The Dalles to provide neighbor to neighbor, landlord tenant and business consumer mediated agreements.
Six Rivers began as a grassroots concept in the small communities of Sherman County, Oregon. Mike McArthur, serving as Sherman County Judge and Oregon Dispute Resolution Commission member felt there was a need for a fundamental shift back to neighbors working together to solve problems. Now, with over 10 years of service to the Mid-Columbia communities, we can proudly say that our partnerships with local and regional governments have provided countless opportunities for positive resolution of complex conflicts for both community members and agencies alike.
