County offices and courts close for New Year's Day
All Spokane County offices, courts (Superior, District and Juvenile), Veterans Services and SCRAPS will be closed on Wednesday, Jan. 1 in observance of the annual New Year’s Day holiday.
Meanwhile, if looking for an unusual New Year’s resolution – consider adopting a family pet from Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service (SCRAPS). From now through the end of the year, SCRAPS is waiving the pet adoption fee. SCRAPS’ regular business hours are Monday-Saturday from noon to 5:30 p.m. SCRAPS is located at 2521 N. Flora Road in the city of Spokane Valley. For more information, call (509) 477-2532.
And in case a New Year’s resolution is improving overall health and physical fitness in 2013, Spokane County Parks, Recreation and Golf is selling 2014 golf multi-play passes and discount cards. Passes may be purchased in person at 404 N. Havana (west of the Fair and Expo Center and across from Avista Stadium) or by calling (509) 477-4730, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
