There are a lot of good stories to be had in today's Valley Voice, so let's get started. Reporter Lisa Leinberger stopped by the 100th anniversary celebration of Opportunity Township Hall last week. The Hall now houses the Spokane Valley Heritage Museum. The museum is also getting ready to host its annual history tour on Oct. 6.

The construction of the Spokane Valley Fire Department's Station 6 has hit another snag. Representatives of the department say there have been numerous design problems that have led to delays and construction is reaching a critical point. If the alsphalt isn't put in before it gets too cold the department can't move in.

The Spokane Valley City Council voted Tuesday to not raise 2013 property taxes by the allowed 1 percent, saying this just isn't the time to raise taxes even though the vote means residential property owners will only save 76 cents per year.

The Central Valley School District is taking a look at whether it should continue it's pay-to-play policy, Lisa reports. The school board is taking a look at how much playing sports costs and whether the fees have impacted how many students sign up.

There are a whole bunch of fun activities coming up this weekend, so let's review. We'll start with a look at the Opportunity Township Hall centennial celebration on Thursday. The hall, built in 1912, now houses the Spokane Valley Heritage Museum. The event will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the museum, located at 12114 E. Sprague. The evening includes a ribbon cutting, time capsule covering and refreshments.

There is limited parking on site, so people are asked to park across the street on the north side of Sprague. Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP by calling (509) 922-4570.
