Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward, following a declaration by Governor Jay Inslee, directed that Washington State and United States flags at all City facilities be lowered to half-staff to honor and pay our respects to Grant County Sheriff’s Deputy Jon Melvin.

Deputy Melvin died in the line of duty on Dec. 11, 2020. Mayor Woodward encourages anyone with a flag outside of their home or business to join us in this recognition to honor Deputy Melvin’s memory.

There will be a memorial service on Thursday, Sept. 16, 1 p.m., at the Cave B Estate Winery in Quincy.
