Spokane Valley, County talk critters and trash

Reporter John Craig has a story in today's paper on yesterday's joint meeting with the Spokane County Commissioners and the Spokane Valley City Council.

The two entities are exploring how to have regional programs to deal with trash and stray or lost animals, but possibly without the participation of the City of Spokane. Expect more discussion on these topics in the future.
