Valley Council Votes To Use $2M From General Fund For Street Maintenance

The Spokane Valley City Council approved a plan to help bridge the gap in what the city has in the bank versus what it needs to pay for continued street maintenance. The council voted to use over $2 million from the city’s 2011 general fund balance over $26 million for street-preservation efforts. This has a couple council members concerned they may not be able to foot the bill for the Sullivan Road Bridge if other funding can't be found.
The Spokane Valley News Herald has the complete story.
