Newman Lake Fire special meeting tonight

Newman Lake Fire District 13 will have a special commissioner meeting tonight at 6 p.m. One of the biggest items on the agenda will be the failure of the construction bond at the polls this month and what steps the district should take next. It looks like there will be some discussion about the 2012 levy as well. The meeting will be held at Station 1 at 10236 N. West Newman Lake Drive.

District 13 special meeting

Spokane County Fire District 13 in Newman Lake is having a special public meeting tonight at 7 p.m. to give out information about the district's bond on the November ballot. The district is asking for $2.2 million to build a new Station 1. The meeting tonight is at the old Station 1, 10236 N. West Newman Lake Drive. If you have any questions about the bond, head on over and ask some questions.

Coming Thursday

The Valley Voice will be full of news you can use on Thursday. Reporter John Craig will have a story on the old Great Northern Railroad right of way that is suddenly popular. Spokane Valley and Millwood want to use it as a trail. Avista Utilities wants to put in electrical transmission lines. And Spokane County wants to lay pipe under it for treated wastewater.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger is continuing her tour of Spokane Valley area SCOPE stations. This week she checked in with Trentwood SCOPE. Since there was no Spokane Valley City Council meeting this week, I took the opportunity to head out to Newman Lake to attend a special meeting of the Newman Lake Fire District. Fire commissioners have been discussing for months (well, years actually) plans to build a new Station 1. The meeting was called to present the public with three different funding options and get input on which plan people preferred.

In Liberty Lake there were two arrests for vehicle prowling and it wasn't anyone known to be a repeat offender for that crime in Liberty Lake.

Special Newman Lake Fire meeting Thursday

The Newman Lake Fire District commissioners have announced a special meeting to be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Station 1, 10236 N. West Newman Lake Drive. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss financing options for the new Station 1 the district is trying to build. There will also be a discussion on setting a date for a public meeting to be held later to discuss the building project. So if you have any interest in hearing details about the plan, head over there tomorrow of the meeting.
