It's Thursday, which means another edition of the Valley Voice has hit porches across Spokane Valley. Reporter Lisa Leinberger has a story today on the monthly Veterans Memorial Tribute Program held at the Eastern Washington State Veterans Cemetery in Medical Lake. The ceremony gives formal honors to veterans who did not receive the honors at their own funerals for whatever reason.

The Spokane Valley City Council spent a fair amount of time Tuesday complaining about a recent story and editorial on a possible conflict of interest due to the close ties some council members have to Jack Pring, the owner of property the city is considering purchasing. After their digression from the agenda, the council decided to move forward with the purchase by preparing a conceptual site plan for the property and negotiating a letter of intent to purchase.

The city recently launched new permit software that has opened up a whole new realm for how employees can track and process permits. There are also plans to open up information to the public by this summer. And if you are looking for something to do this weekend, Lisa has information on the play "Did Someone Say Murder?" being put on by the East Valley High School drama department.
