Spokane City Council to vote on adding dental clinic to East Central Community Center

The Spokane City Council will consider whether to bring a dental clinic to the East Central Community Center Monday night.

The purposed clinic would be run by the community health organization CHAS. The clinic would provide low-cost dental care to East Central residents.

The plan is to build a seven room, 4,000 square foot dental clinic. The estimated construction costs are $1.7 million.

The city received $485,000 in funding from the state. The City Community Housing and Human Services Board allocated $750,000 in federal Community Development Block Grant funding to pay for the clinic. The city plans to take out a Spokane Investment Pool loan to cover the rest.

Council members will decide whether to sign off on the plan at the Spokane City Council meeting on Monday at 6 P.M. The meeting is held the council chambers of lower level of Spokane City Hall and airs on City Cable 5.
