The City of Spokane Valley will spend some time Friday afternoon celebrating its successful effort to get a new state law passed this year. The City Council had received complaints from residents that heavy cattle trucks coming down from Canada were bypassing the Port of Entry at Stateline and coming through residential areas. The new law requires cattle trucks weighing more than 40,000 pounds to stop at the Port of Entry.
The celebration will be from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Friday at CenterPlace, 2426 N. Discovery Place. The Spokane Valley legislators who helped get the law passed have been invited to attend, including Senator Jeff Baxter and Representatives Matt Shea and Larry Crouse.
If you want to head over to the gathering, RSVP to Carolbelle Branch at 720-5411. After all, they have to make sure they have enough cheese.
