Saturday’s highlights

I hope everyone out there is safe and sound this morning, what with all the accident reports on the scanner. I always say that when the roads are nasty there is no shame in creeping along (particularly since I nearly impaled my car on my concrete retaining wall yesterday).

So, on to the highlights from Saturday’s Valley Voice. The Spokane Valley Heritage Museum is raising money to restore the nearly 100-year old historic scroll sign on the front of the historic building that houses the museum. Volunteers recently covered the sign with black plastic to slow the deterioration.

The second story on the Spokane Valley City Council meeting included a variety of discussions and decisions. Longtime volunteer and Valleyfest organizer Peggy Doering nearly lost her seat on the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee after an unexpected push to replace her. The renewal of the city’s street maintenance contract was narrowly approved after it hit a speed bump. The council also discussed whether to raise stormwater fees or allow Spokane County to raise sewer rates, since one of the fees will have to go up.

Parents in the Central Valley School District should note that the school board has approved new elementary school attendance boundaries in Liberty Lake and Greenacres that will take effect if a bond that would pay for a new elementary school (plus other projects) is approved by voters in the spring.
