The Spokane County Elections Office is planning a special filing period next week for the 29 seats up for election across the county that didn't draw any takers during the June filing week. Many of those seats were for small town city councils and small fire districts, including several in the Spokane Valley area.
The vacant seats are on the Fairfield Town Council, Latah Town Council, Spangle Town Council, Waverly Town Council, Fire District 2 and Fire District 12. The full list of vacancies is in this story. The new filing period will be from 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 16 to 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19. Those interested in running for office in November can file online or in person at the election office at 1033 W. Gardner. Call (509) 477-2320 for more information.
If you are still looking for something to do this weekend, there are a couple of options to consider. The City of Spokane Valley will host its first free outdoor summer movie showing in Mirabeau Park on Saturday. Earlier this year residents were able to vote on which movies they wanted shown. The animated PG film “Despicable Me” will show at 9:15 p.m. Saturday. The city's Parks and Recreation Department will have some activities in the park starting an hour before showtime, so head over there early and make a night of it.
Another option is taking a drive Saturday (the weather is supposed to be nice) down to Latah for the fifth annual “Cruzin the Palouse to Latah” car and truck show from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Cruzin Inland Northwest Car Club, formerly known as the Cruzin Corvettes. In addition to classic cars and trucks there will also be carnival games, balloon fights, barbecue, raffles, a beer garden and more. The Latah Post Office is even getting in on the fun by offering Indianapolis 500 stamps and a special postmark. Latah is about 35 miles south of Spokane Valley on Highway 27.
So there are your choices, though you can do both if you're feeling ambitious.
