Mayor Condon holding telephone townhall for public to weigh-in on 2020 budget

Spokane residents can weigh-in on how their tax dollars are spent next year in a telephone town hall Wednesday night.

Mayor David Condon’s proposed 2020 budget includes 20 new hires for the Spokane Police Department, and funding to keep 30 firefighters who were previously paid for with a federal grant.

It also includes funding for a new homeless shelter, fixing up residential and arterial streets, and cleaning up the Spokane River.
