Last night the Spokane Valley City Council selected a new planning commissioner - land surveyor Michael Phillips. He was one of two people to apply for the vacant seat. The vote was nearly unanimous, so City Manager Mike Jackson didn't have to get out another coin to decide the issue. There were be more details on the selection in Thursday's Valley Voice.
Also in Thursday's Valley Voice, reporter Lisa Leinberger will have a report on last night's extremely lengthy East Valley School District meeting to discuss the future of K-8 schools. Lisa said the room was packed with parents, some of whom were quite emotional.
