New home for regional animal control

Regional animal control is expected to find a new home at the former Schumate Harley-Davidson building, according to a Spokane Regional Animal Protection Service news release.

The building, located at 6815 E. Trent, will be retrofitted to handle animal control for all of Spokane County.

Spokane City Council voted to switch to country services for their animal control, breaking off their ties to SpokAnimal after three decades of contracts.

S.C.R.A.P.S. will begin their 20-year contract with the city of Spokane beginning in 2014. They’ll take over animal licensing and combine their data with the city’s as well.

The new contract does not increase local taxes and the city of Spokane will pay the county $561,000 per year, according to prior reports.

A news conference is being held later today to talk about the site and host a tour for public officials and local media outlets.

Correction: Our original blog post named the building as Latus Harley-Davidson based on information from Spokane County news releases.
