Council rejects Rush’s plan to eliminate utility tax

The Spokane City Council rejected Councilman Richard Rush's proposal to ask voters if they want to eliminate the city's utility tax on trash, sewer and water early this morning on a 5-2 vote.

Rush did get one other vote of support, from Bob Apple.

The vote, the final one on the council for Rush, Apple, Council President Joe Shogan and Councilman Steve Corker, took place just after 1 a.m.
