Spokane Valley weighs solid waste management options | News
From the City of Spokane Valley:
Ensuring community members receive the most affordable, sustainable, and environmentally responsible solid waste service is foremost on the minds of Spokane Valley City Councilmembers, who hosted a Special Joint Meeting on the topic with the Spokane County Board of County Commissioners on Monday.
"Any long term agreement entered into by the City of Spokane Valley must result in the lowest possible cost, and retain control over future rates and policy for our citizens," said Mayor Dean Grafos.
Those priorities will remain in the forefront as City Councilmembers meet with other participants in a presentation on solid waste with Spokane County on Thursday, February 27 from 5:00pm to about 8:00pm at CenterPlace Regional Event Center, 2426 N. Discovery Place. It is expected that the County will unveil its proposal at that meeting.
Spokane Valley, one of the fourteen interested municipalities, is noted for its lean operations, quality services and cost-effective measures. So with the current regional agreement set to expire on November 16 of this year, City staffers have been researching and analyzing the current solid waste system and opportunities for ensuring solid waste services are favorable for Spokane Valley citizens.
Community members are welcome to attend the meeting on February 27 to gain more facts about the topic. While public comment will not be taken at that time, community members are always encouraged to share their questions and thoughts with Councilmembers by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 509-720-5106.
