Corrections center choice likely tonight

Spokane County commissioners are scheduled to confirm this evening their tentative selection of a site for a replacement of the Geiger Corrections Center.

Commissioners previously voted 2-1, with Bonnie Mager dissenting, to choose a location near the Medical Lake interchange on Interstate 90.

No public testimony is to be taken when commissioners revisit the selection at 5:30 p.m. in the Public Works Building at 1026 W. Broadway Ave., next to the courthouse.

Nor is there to be testimony on a proposal to declare an emergency so a necessary comprehensive plan change can be completed in time for a bond measure in April.
