County may cancel Austin contract

Spokane County Commissioners have an executive session at 2 p.m. to talk about cancelling the contract to run the Raceway Park.

They had already given Bucky Austin, the embattled operator, a 60-day deadline, that’s set to run out next week. They may cancel today.

Unanswered questions include what will they do if Austin doesn’t pay the contractors who did the work this summer at the raceway? What will they do with the track, which the county bought last year — find a new operator or have the county Parks run it themselves?

Stay tuned.
