New ambulance director selected for Spring Valley


Fri, Aug 15th, 2014
Posted in Spring Valley Government

A new ambulance director has been named for Spring Valley. Todd Jones informed the Council that Brett Rima of Thief River Falls has accepted the position starting Sept. 2. Previously an offer of employment had been made to Ryan Marking and he declined the offer. Todd Jones said that he was glad the issue has been settled. Speaking to members of the Spring Valley Ambulance Service it appears as though they are anxious to work with the new director.

Another issue concerning the ambulance operation was action by the council setting minimum requirements for on call time for members. Currently members are expected to be on call for 48 hours of each month. The fact that this has been a long time issue with trying to fill spots on the schedule prompted the council to set the minimum number of hours to respond for call outs to 30 hours. Members will be required to respond and if they don’t, there will be a sit down and to discuss what issues are preventing them from responding. A second warning in writing will be given to the volunteer and then a third time will result in a termination of the volunteer.

The televising of the city sewer system will be continued as many areas are found to be requiring repair. This week the televising will be concentrated at Pleasant and Washington. An additional cost of $25,000 will be required to complete Pleasant and Washington and the South East section of the city.

Approval was also granted to install at airline at the fire station.
