In case you missed today's paper, there are a couple of good Spokane Valley stories in there. The Spokane Valley Fire Department picked a new fire chief Monday, Bryan Collins of California. The board of commissioners and two panels of community members interviewed the top six candidates last week. There was one internal candidate in the top six as well as someone from the Spokane Fire Department.
Reporter Mike Prager got a look inside the former Harley Davidson dealership on East Trent in Spokane Valley Monday that will be the new home of SCRAPS. Elected officials from Spokane, Spokane Valley and Spokane County were there to unveil the building and talk about the remodeling work to be done this year. The County hopes to have the new regional shelter up and running by Jan. 1, 2014.
