Saturday's Valley Voice is chock full of news from the area and makes an excellent read over coffee (or lunch). Reporter Lisa Leinberger spoke to the founder of Hearth Homes, Karen Fournier. She runs several homes for homeless women with children and is getting ready for a ribbon cutting on another house.
The Spokane Valley City Council had its annual winter retreat last week and spent hours discussing various issues facing the city. They discussed how to pay for street preservation projects, economic development and the possible acquisition of land in partnership with the Spokane County Library District.
Correspondent Valerie Putnam attended the Millwood City Council meeting where the council discussed the possible need to raise water rates. Last week the Spokane Valley Fire Department managed to put out a chicken coop fire before any of the chickens were hurt.
The sun is shining (for now) and it's Friday (thank goodness), so it's time to look ahead at what is in store for the Saturday Valley Voice. I'll have the second helping of news from this week's Spokane Valley City Council meeting. They discussed projects that would improve the Mission Avenue trailhead in Greenacres and establish quiet zones on the Union Pacific line west of Millwood. They also talked about whether they had funding to do the work.
The Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce has announced the end of the annual Miss Spokane Valley competition. Another person has filed paperwork to run for City Council in November and reporter Lisa Leinberger will have a story on Hearth Homes, which provides housing for homeless women. The organization just got a large donation that enabled it to buy a house.
