Mayor Condon responds to Prop. 1 Public Safety Levy results

Voters in the city of Spokane approved a property tax increase which would fund the hiring of police and fire personnel and crime reduction programs.

The initial election results were counted Tuesday night following the Spokane Valley Special Election.

Spokane Mayor David Condon released the following statement in response to the results of the approved levy.

“While I wish we had been able to work together with City Council on a public safety investment plan that was collaborative and designed to meet specific measurable outcomes, Spokane voters clearly have told us they would like enhanced public safety services. So, we will deliver a thoughtful spending plan for those dollars that’s sustainable as part of the 2020 budget.”
