Prosecutors consider mayor’s concessions request

Another city union is voting on a plan that would meet Mayor Mary Verner’s request for concessions.

The Spokane Prosecutors Association is considering a proposal that would eliminate its scheduled 2 percent raise next year and to cover a higher amount of the cost of medical benefits, said acting Human Resources Director Erin Jacobson.

Without the concessions, two assistant city prosecutor jobs would be cut. The deal would save one of those jobs and allow the city to continue to prosecute defendants in the mental health court. One position, which is currently unfilled, would still be lost, said city spokeswoman Marlene Feist.

Jacobson said the union is expected to have results from a vote on the deal by Monday.
