A Matter Of Opinion

City will do the heavy lifting

The Spokane City Council voted 5-2 last night to retain responsibility for inspecting elevators here.  The alternative was to turn the statutorily mandated work over to the state, which every other city in Washington except Seattle has already done.

Either way, under current practices, the work is not going to be done on a timely basis because both state and city inspectors are way behind. 

What, if anything, did the city gain by this decision?
