Some Local Govt. Offices Closed Monday; Some Open
Don't forget that Monday, February 17 is the President's Day holiday, so some local government offices will be closed. It's a mixed bag of who's open and who's closed, so here is what I've been notified of:
- SRTC will be open - City of Spokane services and offices will be open.
- Spokane Valley City Hall and offices will be closed.
- Spokane County offices will be closed.
Parking meters don’t have to be plugged on Monday either.
SRTC is the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Spokane County. Urbanized areas with populations exceeding 50,000 people are required to have an MPO. SRTC was formed to address the county's transportation planning needs. It provides coordination in planning between the public, cities, small towns, the county, the state, transit providers, and tribes.
SRTC offers services including transportation monitoring, transportation modeling, census information analysis, travel demand forecasting, historical traffic count analysis, geographic information systems, and trip generation rates.
