Civic leaders in Spokane, Washington are closer to reaching a final draft agreement on the role they will play in the sale of 96 million dollar of bonds for expansion of a convention center and other projects, sources said. Leaders from the cities Spokane and Spokane Valley, Spokane County, and the Spokane Public Facilities District said they are within weeks of presenting their governing bodies with the latest proposal for adopting an agreement in issuing the bonds. Spokane County and the newly incorporated Spokane Valley likely would issue 12 million dollar and 7 million dollar of limited-tax general obligation bonds, respectively, for renovating the fairgrounds and building a community-events center for Spokane Valley.
