Snow questions, no answers

Now that disincorporation has been taken off the table, it’s time to look at the quality services that the residents of Spokane Valley have lost. The No. 1 service that comes to mind is snow removal. In a normal snow event, six trucks and two graders are hardly adequate.

The city seems happy with the used equipment purchased from the state, but there was a reason they no longer used those trucks. If we have a winter like the previous two, there is no way to keep roads open and safe for travel with a “parking lot fleet.” Why hasn’t anyone said anything about our tax dollars going to an out-of-state contractor?

What happened to no new taxes? Too many questions, too little time. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
