Library agreement on hold
A reciprocal borrowing agreement between the Spokane County Library District and the Liberty Lake Municipal Library is on hold until the SCLD board of directors has a chance to vote on it. 

The agreement was on the SCLD board of trustees agenda Sept. 18, the same night it was unanimously approved by the Liberty Lake City Council, but SCLD Director Nancy Ledeboer said the meeting went overtime and was adjourned before the agreement could be voted on.  

The agreement, which would allow city of Liberty Lake residents to obtain an SCLD library card, will be on considered by the SCLD board at its next meeting Oct. 16, Ledeboer said. 

CV board receives updates
The Central Valley School District board of directors received updates and heard presentations at its regular meeting Monday, including enrollment figures for the first semester of the new Spokane Valley Tech. 

Superintendent Ben Small said two sections each of the fire science and cosmetology programs were "basically full." For the newer programs, sports medicine has eight students while aerospace manufacturing has five. He said he expected these numbers to increase dramatically when construction on the new campus is completed for the term beginning in January. 

The school board also heard presentations on the district's Early Learning Center and CVSD participation fees before launching into a lengthy workshop discussion evaluating and interpreting state test results in the district.

Lions donate $1,000 to city project
Representatives of the Liberty Lake Lions Club presented the city of Liberty Lake a $1,000 check Sept. 18, asking that it be used for a bench and lavender plantings along the pedestrian bridge. 

Former Mayor Wendy Van Orman and former City Council Member Judi Owens joined Tony Cheshier to represent the Lions Club membership in the check presentation. Owens also presented the city with a bouquet of lavender. 

The money was raised from the Bed Races the club held during Liberty Lake Days this summer, Van Orman said. 

Goats move on to Rocky Hill
The goats the city of Liberty Lake rented finished up their work earlier this week near Nature's Place at Meadowwood arboretum and have moved on to Rocky Hill Park, Parks and Open Space Superintendent Jennifer Camp said. 

The 27 goats are working on a thick patch of weeds near the barn and should be grazing at Rocky Hill for "at least two weeks," Camp said Tuesday.
