Spokane Mayor David Condon will host a community conversation on the historic City and Spokane Public Schools partnership and the 2019 City budget on Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 6 to 7 p.m. Citizens are invited to join the discussion and offer feedback.

Residents will be contacted using technology that allows the City to call thousands of people to ask if they want to participate in the meeting. Citizens can also opt into the meeting by calling 877.353.4701 between 6 and 6:45 p.m. The Mayor will be joined by Spokane Public Schools Superintendent Shelley Redinger and Spokane Public Library Director Andrew Chanse for the first half of the program.

“The goal of the Telephone Town Hall is to make it easy for people to join these important conversations when and where it’s most convenient for them,” says Mayor Condon. “We want to know what is most important to our citizens.”

Citizens who prefer to participate in person can come to the City Council Chambers at City Hall on Oct. 23 to join the discussion live. People can also participate in the community conversation on social media @spokanecity on Twitter and Facebook. The entire evening will be broadcast live on on CityCable 5 and streamed on

Since 2012, the Telephone Town Hall has been one of the ways citizens have been able to stay informed issues impacting the City. The approach allows the City to reach thousands of citizens on the phone and online.
