Parking meters don’t have to be plugged on Monday because of the Indigenous Peoples Day holiday.
The holiday celebrates the original inhabitants of North America, observed instead of Columbus Day in some U.S. cities and communities. In 2016 the Spokane City Council decided to change the federal Columbus Day holiday to Indigenous Peoples Day in honor of the region’s first inhabitants.
The city of Spokane offices, however, will be open as usual on Monday, and garbage pickup and curbside recycling will proceed on a normal schedule.
The Spokane City Council briefing session and legislative meeting will be held on their regular schedule on Monday at 3:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. in the City Council Chambers in the lower level of City Hall, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd.
