Spokane Regional Health District Board Holding Special Meeting Today


The Spokane Regional Health District Board of Health is holding a special meeting today following last week's firing of Health Officer Dr. Bob Lutz. The meeting scheduled for 3 p.m. will include comments from both Lutz and Administrative Officer Amelia Clark, who fired Lutz last Thursday. Lutz cannot be formally removed from his position until the board votes on it. The board is expected to vote to name Dr. Mary Bergum as the new county health officer.
