Parks levy would build field house in Spokane

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Spokane County voters may be asked next spring to approve a $45 million parks levy.

About half the money would pay for a field house near Riverfront Park in Spokane. The other half could pay for a new park in the Spokane Valley or Liberty Lake area.

The Spokesman-Review reports (http://bit.ly/1gAu0Is) the levy would cost the owner of a $200,000 home about $28 a year in property taxes.
