Airway Heights city council to reduce tribe services


Last updated 12/16/2022 at 3:13pm

AIRWAY HEIGHTS - City council votes to reduce fire, EMS, and police services in two areas owned or held in trust by the Kalispel tribe.

City administrator Albert Tripp said “The Kalispel tribe failed to pay on two separate contracts for service from the city, so we are reducing service proportional to that lack of payment.”

One of these contracts, established in 1996, between the city and the Kalispel tribe, was paid annually until 2019. The second contract is a 3-party contract among the Kalispel tribe, Spokane County, and Airway Heights. Payments on this contract ceased in 2018.
