Tonight the Spokane Valley City Council is scheduled to vote on whether to purchase eight acres of land from Spokane Valley businessman Jack Pring. The Spokane County Library District wants to build a new library at the site but couldn't afford to purchase the entire property. District representatives approached the city about purchasing the land together. The proposed purchase price is $2.5 million.
I'm afraid the item is fairly deep in the agenda, though. You'll have to sit through votes and discussions on property taxes, a budget amendment, the 2013 budget and the city's nuisance codes before the council gets to it. The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague.
