Christopher Columbus’ benefactors paid his way to the New World, and the city will be picking up the parking tab should you choose to venture downtown on the day observing his achievements.
Monday is a free parking holiday at all Spokane meters. City offices will be open all day, however, and trash and recycling pickup will occur as scheduled.
The City Council will proceed with its usual schedule Monday night. A briefing session will be held at City Hall at 3:30 p.m. with a legislative session to follow at 7 p.m.
