Saturday’s highlights

School and city news dominated the Saturday Valley Voice. Reporter Lisa Leinberger weighed in with a story on longtime Central Valley board member Cynthia McMullen, who has retired after 24 years. Lisa also met up with a few high school girls who have set up a store at West Valley High School called Inspire. The store is there to sell designer clothes for prices low enough that all students can afford them.

The Spokane Valley City Council had a lengthy discussion last week on the speed limit on Mission Ave. between Flora and Barker. No decision was made, but they did agree to move forward on a vote this month to consider whether the limit should be changed from 35 miles per hour. The council also heard a report on the Shoreline Management Program, which is currently stalled. A new plan must be approved by 2013.

In more school news, correspondent Steve Christilaw had a story about new West Valley High School wrestling coach Mike Bundy. Last year he was the assistant wrestling coach at Central Valley High School.

Busy SV council meeting Tuesday

The Spokane Valley City Council has a busy agenda before it Tuesday night and the meeting could go long depending on the amount of discussion on several items that have attracted interest. The meeting is a study session so there will not be a general public comment time. There are a couple action items on the agenda that public comment will be accepted on.

The council is scheduled to vote on the allocation of lodging tax funds, which has generated a lot of debate. A vote is also planned on new planning commission rules of procedure. Several reports are on the agenda, including one on shoreline management and one on the speed limit on Mission between Flora and Barker. The speed limit item is to be discussion only and there won't be a vote on that this week. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at City Hall (11707 E. Sprague) if you want to drop by and listen.
