Valley Snow Removal Plan In Effect

It was two years ago when the City of Spokane Valley lost its' contract with Spokane County to do their snow removal. We didn't have much snow last year so it wasn't much of an issue. But now that we're getting dumped on, how is the City of Spokane Valley keeping up with snow removal? Pretty well,
according to this Spokane Valley Herald article.

I drive through the Valley on a pretty regular basis and haven't noticed any major snow problems recently. Any Valley residents have any input?

I drove through the valley Saturday night and the roads were in better condition than Spokane's. There was a definite change at Spokane's city limits!

Hmmm... that's interesting. Good job Spokane Valley. I made a pretty long trek down Sprague in the Thanksgiving night 'blizzard' and had no problems, but when I got on the freeway at Evergreen, I90 was UGLY.
