Spokane mayor releases budget proposal

A second police precinct, a steady stream of newly trained cops, and a race to the deadline for a cleaner Spokane River dominates Mayor David Condon’s 2015 budget proposal, which he released earlier today.

The $585 million budget plan is in many ways a continuation of this year’s budget, which saw a major investment to beef up the police force and the unveiling of the administration’s ambitious effort to integrate infrastructure projects, at once building new streets and diverting pollutants from entering the river. 

You can read more about it in tomorrow's paper, but for now check out a video of the mayor's press conference below.
