Most of Spokane County may be thinking about such warm weather concerns as whether we fit into a bathing suit, whether the legs are so white they’ll blind bystanders or how to get a decent campground site. But not the elected officials of Spokane Valley and Spokane County.
They are still engaged in a war of words over snow. Specifically, how will it be pushed off the streets of the City of Spokane Valley once it starts falling this winter. The answer:
No one is sure.
In January, the Spokane County commissioners notified the City of the Valley the county would not be plowing under its existing contract in the winter of ‘09-‘10. Valley officials’ reaction ranged from surprise to outrage to unprintable streams of invective which, if uttered outside, probably would have melted the snow and contributed to global warming.
County said the current contract allowed for cancellation with 180 days notice, and they were giving much more than that…
So now it’s almost June, and feelings apparently haven’t healed much….
