Every now and then, the City of Spokane holds a casual town hall meeting in place of the rigid meeting in the city council chambers. This tactic aims to get neighbors out of their homes to talk about their surroundings by bringing the city council meeting to their neck of the woods.
Here’s some notes from a portion of Monday night’s meeting. We had to scoot out of there around 6:45 p.m. to catch a bus, but here’s what we know:
Street Music Week
The one proclamation during Monday’s town hall meeting was announced for Spokesman-Review columnist, Doug Clark, for his work on Street Music Week. Too bad the proclamation was handwritten. If you look on the bright side, a handwritten note takes longer to write than a typed note.
Neighborhood Boundary Change Approved
Members of City Council approved the boundary change between the Five Mile Prairie and Balboa/South Indian Trail neighborhood. We met Ron Minarik with the City of Spokane who helped planned Monday’s town hall meeting. He also presented the boundary change to the city council.
