Welcome to Spokane County

Spokane County is the fourth-largest county in the State of Washington and borders Idaho. As the heart of the Inland Northwest, we are proud of our mix of urban amenities and home-town hospitality. We invite you to take a wintry stroll along the Centennial Trail, visit the Museum of Arts and Culture , or spend the day at Mount Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park.

Seasonal Weight Restrictions in Effect on Posted County Roads

Spokane County’s Engineering and Roads Department announced that seasonal weight restrictions are in effect on posted county roads and will continue until further notice. Roadway surfaces and the structures beneath the surface have become weakened during this winter’s cycle of freezing temperatures, followed by warmer temperatures and precipitation. 

Impacted roads in Spokane County are posted with signs indicating maximum allowable weights. Typically, these restrictions do not apply to the average car or pickup truck. However, commercial and construction vehicles may need to lighten their loads in order to comply with the restrictions. Spokane County commercial vehicle enforcement officers will be on patrol and violators will be fined! Fines may vary according to the nature of the infraction. 

Board Openings for Interested Residents

Spokane County taking applications for Solid Waste Advisory Board

The board will review potential rate changes at Spokane County-operated transfer stations and is also tasked with reviewing proposed rules and ordinances at the county’s three transfer stations before they are forwarded to county commissioners. Spokane County assumed control of the regional solid waste system in November 2014.

One resident from each of the three Spokane County Commissioner district will be appointed to serve on the board. The county is also looking for a representative from the waste industry and/or recycling industry. The Solid Waste Advisory Board meets from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. the third Wednesday of every month at the Spokane County Water Reclamation Facility, 1004 N. Freya St.

Those interested in applying should contact Ginna Vasquez, the clerk of the Board of Spokane County Commissioners, at (509) 477-2265. Technical questions should be directed to Bill Wedlake, the county’s solid waste manager, at (509) 477-7281.

ALERT Spokane–The Spokane County Emergency Notification System

A Public Safety Message from the Spokane County Commissioners

How will you be notified if there’s an emergency in your neighborhood? Through ALERT Spokane – a Spokane County emergency notification system! 

ALERT Spokane is used to inform citizens about emergencies in their area.  The ALERT Spokane system can be activated by law enforcement, fire service, water districts, etc. Once activated, a recorded message is sent to landline telephones with information about the emergency and what actions to take. For example, if there’s a wild fire in your area, you might be told to evacuate.

It’s important to note that the recorded message will be sent to landline telephones in the affected area. If you have discontinued your landline telephone service and are relying on a cell phone or VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone, you will not receive an emergency message from ALERT Spokane – unless you register your cell phone in the system! Even if you still have a landline telephone, it’s a good idea to register your cell phone with ALERT Spokane.

In the interest of public safety, the Spokane County Board of Commissioners is urging the public to register their cell phones and VoIP phones (Comcast, Vonage, XO Communications, etc.) with ALERT Spokane. It’s easy to do. Just go to www.alertspokane.org and enter the information. You can also register more than one cell or VoIP phone number.

Be informed – stay safe – register with ALERT Spokane TODAY at www.alertspokane.org!
