If you were thinking for applying for vacant seats on the Spokane Valley Planning Commission or the city's Lodging Tax Advisory Committee, time is running out. The deadline is Monday for all four vacancies (two on each). None of the positions are paid.
The Planning Commission is in charge of holding public hearings on planning and zoning items and making recommendations to the City Council. The two seats there are both for three year terms that would start Jan. 1. Applicants must live inside the city limits.
The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee makes recommendations to the City Council on how the lodging tax funds should be distributed. The money is collected to benefit tourism. The two open seats are both for people involved in activities authorized to receive funding for the tax.
Both applications are available on the city's web site or at City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague. Call (509) 720-5102 for more information.
