Folks who just can't get enough City of Spokane documents can now plan their summer.
The city recently upgraded access to its public records online, adding (relatively) easy access to about 38,000 records.
The city clerk's new records search tool gives access to resolutions, ordinances, leases, contracts and city council meeting minutes. A press release notes more 800,000 pages of information going back to 2004 are viewable.
Mayor Mary Verner said the expanded access is part of the city's commitment to open government. “This tool provides our citizens with 24-7 access to important information on the activities of the City of Spokane,” she said.
