Spokane Valley wants to know what city residents think about stormwater management and how much they’re willing to pay for it.

The city is holding a stormwater open house from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday at Spokane Valley City Hall.

Spokane Valley officials want to know whether the public would prefer a “minimum” or “pro-active” level of stormwater service.

Doing the minimum would be cheaper. Being pro-active would require the city to raise its stormwater fees, which haven’t changed since 2006.

Individuals who wish to provide feedback but cannot attend the open house can fill out a comment form at spokanevalley.org/stormwaterfee.
