The Spokane Valley City Council will elect a new mayor at tonight's council meeting, or they could decide to vote in Mayor Tom Towey for a second term. The city has a city manager form of government and the position of mayor is largely ceremonial. The mayor runs the council meetings and represents the city at public events.
Tonight's meeting will also include a vote on the city's street maintenance contract, which has been the subject of lengthy debate at several previous meetings. The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague.
