Page 8 Free Press Thursday, March 19, 2015 Surp Current manager leaves to pursue career in education By PAUL DELANEY Staff Reporter There are changes ahead for the Eastern Washington University Surplus Store. First, the facility will be finally making a long-antici- pated move from its current location in downtown Cheney on 120 G Street to quarters ad- jacent to the new parking lot addition north of Roos Field. The other change zs in per- sonnel where Friday, March 20 will be the final day on the job for current manager and EWU student Katie Emery. "Spring quarter will be my last quarter at EWU," Emery wrote in an email. "I will be student teaching at East Valley High School starting on March 23, and therefore I am unable to continue my position at (EWU) Surplus." The move of the surplus operations will take place by the first week of April with an anticipated first day of opera- tions in the new building Fri- day, April 3 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There is no official address to the new building. Signs will be placed near the entrance on Washington St. to help guide customers to the building. The current building will be closed March 20 and 27 to accommodate the move and build up inventory. The store Photo by Paul Delaney The EWU Surplus Store will be moving closer to campus with the former location (above) likely being turned over to records storage for the university. Can still be reached at 359-7377 or (509) 227-9778 (cell) or via email at, Doug Thompson is the new contact. "We hope that our new fa- cility will enable our customers to see how we are striving to become as modern and con- ril 3 venient as possible," Emery said. The former surplus store location will remain univer- sity property, Emery said in a recent interview. "What we've heard, and this is not confirmed is that it's going to be records storage," Emery said. Cur- rently university records are stored at a variety of locations across campus. Moving records will not be completed until a new fire suppression system is installed. The new location will consist of 2,500 square feet compared to 12,500 atthe former Safeway store. Paul Delaney can be reached at continued from page 1 would fit on the new one. Pike said staff could put a flatbed on the truck in the future. "We're keeping the white flatbed truck we currently have in ser- vice," Pike said. "This new truck would have a snowplow on it for the winter." The council passed a resolution for the Parks and Recreation Depart- ment to submit a grant application to the Lodg- ing Tax Advisory Com- mittee for marketing and promoting the 2015 Air- way Heights Festival and annual Ford Open Car Show. Dan Garcia, presi- dent of the Thunderbirds Car Club and member of the committee, said the goal is to continue to expand the car show and bring in car owners from all over the Inland Northwest and Canada for the event. "We are coming into our 32nd annual show and we are trying to make it an attraction to go along with the festi- val," Garcia said. "Last year we pulled in ap- proximately 280 vehicles, which is one of the big- gest shows in the region. We are trying to focus on possibly becoming the next Stu~rgis of car shows in our area." Garcia also presented the Parks, Recreation and Community Services De- partment with the In- land Northwest Car Club Council's 2014 "Busi- ness of the Year" award. Garcia said the positive response for the 2014 car show was "overwhelm- ing." Pike and Andy Gard- ner, Parks, Recreation and Community Services supervisor, accepted the award on the depart- ment's behalf: Kennedy praised the department staff for their time and dedication for getting the park ready for the festival "When I found out about this, I thought it was more appropriate to have our staff here rec- ognized because they're the ones with the boots on the ground doing all of the work." In other action items, the council authorized an agreement with Cen- tury West Engineering to complete the city's Comprehensive Water Plan update, not to ex- ceed $55,000. Tripp ex- plained that the city had not updated the plan since 2009. Before City Council got down to business, Spokane Transit Author- ity's Susan Meyer, chief executive officer and Karl Otterstrom, director of planning, gave a presen- tation on its "Moving Forward" Proposition 1 ballot measure, which will appear on a April. 28 ballot. The proposition pro- poses to increase local sales tax by up to three- tenths of I percent - the equivalent of 3 cents to every $10 purchase - to help maintain service and build enhancement projects over the next several years, one being a proposed West Plains transit center. The ballot features a sunshine clause that expires in 2025.
