Inland Journal, July 16, 2019: Spokane County Library District Ballot Measure
Today on the Inland Journal podcast, we focus on a ballot measure submitted by the Spokane County Library District for the August 6 primary election. The district wants to adjust the level of the property tax levy that provides most of its funding. The district operates 11 libraries outside of the cities of Spokane and Liberty Lake, including two in Spokane Valley, and one each in Airway Heights, Cheney, Medical Lake and Deer Park.
Patrick Roewe is the district’s executive director.
On Wednesday’s podcast, we talk with two of the most powerful people in Spokane County who are not elected. Theresa Sanders, the administrator of the city of Spokane, and Gerry Gemmill, the CEO of Spokane County, talk about how their entities work together on a range of issues, including issues where their elected officials disagree.
