Spring Valley ambulance trailer use discussed


Mon, May 2nd, 2016
Posted in Spring Valley Government

The Spring Valley City Council met on Monday, April 25, 2016. Members in attendance were Tony Archer, Todd Jones, Mayor Jim Struzyk, Bill Bires, and City Administrator Deb Zimmer. Jeff Vehrenkamp was absent.

Ben Schlaak addressed the council on the ambulance crew’s suggestion to make the Rehab Trailer Unit available to a regional 11-county area, explaining, “We’ve discussed with the crew, the possibility of making it more of a regional asset… We’re very fortunate; we’re one of the few entities that have anything like this… If it does become a regional resource, there may be funding for maintenance for it.” He said such HSPP grants are only available for equipment used regionally.

Council members asked how this would be staffed, and Schlaak explained that when a page came in for the unit to be used elsewhere within the region, a member of the local crew (who is not already on-duty) would drive the unit to the destination and help set it up. The crew using the unit would return it after use. He said the crew using the equipment would be responsible for replacing any disposable items used, and for repairing any damages. The local crew would check for inventory and damages after each use, and would bill for any repairs needed. Schlaak said all of this will be written into the contract which is currently being worked on. He will attend a Southeast meeting on April 27 and will ask which communities would be interested in using the Rehab unit. No formal action was taken by the council at this time, but they OK’d Schlaak to continue working on this.

No visitors were signed up to address the council. The council tentatively approved April Accounts Payable, pending Mayor Struzyk reviewing them. Struzyk then discussed the proposed EDA By-Law Revisions, explaining that some wording is no longer accurate. He also said there needs to be one change of membership, because Jeff Vehrenkamp will go off the board, and Jason will be added. The council approved these changes as proposed.

Next, John Fenske talked about painting the pool, explaining that his crew could do it, or the city could hire a professional painting service, at a higher cost. The pros and cons were discussed, and the council chose to hire a professional service.

Bill Bires brought up that some curbing in the city has been damaged by snow plowing, and will need to be fixed. The members agreed this needs to be taken ca .....
