If you’re really hard up for something to do today, take a walk over to the northwest corner of Division and Mission. That’s where a sample of the City of Spokane’s proposed bus bench has been installed. The bench will be available for citizens to view and try out until Friday, Sept. 4.
Earlier this summer, the City named Creative Outdoor Advertising as the winner of the City’s bus bench contract. The contract hasn’t been approved by City Council yet, but once it is new benches will be installed at over 200 locations in the City within 90 days.
So give their product a try. If you can get past me anyway. I’ll be the one sprawled out the bench, using government time to take a nap but passing it off as Quality assurance/quality control.
