Now is a good time to check out today's Valley Voice while we wait to see if the weatherman is right and snow is on the way. The Spokane Valley City Council appears to be ready to vote on a contract with the Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service for animal control services as soon as the contract language is finalized. This would end a year of debate over whether the city should stick with SCRAPS or contract with SpokAnimal.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger has a couple of good stories. She wrote about people who take citizenship classes through World Relief Spokane. The classes help them prepare for their naturalization test so they can become citizens.Lisa also has another entry in the East Farms Diary. She has been spending days at the East Farms STEAM Magnet School as the kids focus on science, technology, math, engineering and art.

The Spokane Valley Fire Department commissioners picked former Central Valley School District superindendent Mike Pearson to fill a vacancy on the board of commissioners. He will be sworn in at the next commissioner's meeting.
