Spokane Valley and Liberty Lake voters have some decisions to make, and ballots must be in the mail by next Tuesday, Aug. 1.
In Spokane Valley, incumbent Rod Higgins has two challengers, Al (Albert) Merkel and Chris Jackson, for Position 1. In Position 5, Pamela Haley – who was appointed to fill a vacant seat last year – is being challenged by Ingemar (Lloyd) Woods, Angie Beem and Robert (Rocky Samson).
The top-two vote-getters in both races will move on to the November general election.
Meanwhile, in Liberty Lake, voters will once again cast ballots to decide whether or not to build a $9 million community center and library on property along Meadowwood Lane near the existing farmers market.
In 2016 a similar 2016 proposal, which included an aquatics center, received 56-percent approval – which was shy of the needed 60-percent supermajority for passage.
On Tuesday, a voter service center will be open at CenterPlace, 2426 N. Discovery Place, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voters can drop off ballots, get replacement envelopes, vote a provisional ballot, use an accessible voting unit or get answers to questions.
