Spokane Valley

Want to be on the city council?

Probably more than a few people have sat in the audience during a city council meeting or read about a meeting in the paper and grouched that they could do it better. Well, here's your chance. The City of Spokane Valley is now officially accepting applications from residents interested in filling the council seat vacated by Rose Dempsey when she resigned. You have until 4 p.m. on March 4 to turn it in.

The seat is open to anyone who has lived in the Spokane Valley city limits for at least a year and is a registered voter. Applications are available here or at City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague. Applications must be mailed or hand-delivered. A vote to appoint a new council member is tentatively set for the March 29 council meeting. Click here for a complete schedule and description of the process. 

Whoever is appointed will serve the remainder of Dempsey's term, which expires in November. The person appointed could then run for re-election if he or she chooses.
