Amy Biviano applies for Spokane Valley council

Former Washington state legislature candidate Amy Biviano is one of nine people who have applied to fill a vacant position on the Spokane Valley City Council. Biviano lost to Rep. Matt Shea in the November election after a closely watched campaign. Current city planning commission members Kevin Anderson and Rod Higgins and former planning commissioner Rustin Hall have also put in applications. Others applying for the position are software quality assurance engineer Jonathan Gibbs, Virtual Education Software CEO Mick Jackson, technical writer Paul Rieckers, Greater Spokane Substance Abuse Council executive director Linda Thompson and real estate appraiser Samuel Wood. The open council position was created when council woman Brenda Grassel resigned because she was moving outside the city limits. The council will meet in executive session at 5 p.m. Tuesday to review the applications. A vote will be held during the council meeting that follows at 6 p.m. to decide which applicants to interview. The interviews are scheduled to be held during the Jan. 29 council meeting.
