The City of Spokane Valley's Bike and Pedestrian Master Program hit a bump in the road a few weeks ago when it was eyed critically by the city council after the Planning Commission voted to recommend that the council approve it. It's back up for discussion at tonight's council meeting. The meeting is a study session, however, so public comment will not be allowed. But people can still come and listen to the discussion.
The other big item on tonight's agenda is nine presentations by outside agencies who are all seeking a slice of the social services funding pie. Every year agencies line up to ask for money to fund various programs and projects. This year the city has allocated $165,000 for this purpose. The agencies on the schedule to make presentations tonight include Spokane Valley Partners, Valley Meals on Wheels and Project Access. The council will listen to the presentations tonight and vote at a later date on how much money, if any, to give to each agency.
Tonight's meeting is at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague.
