Zimmer reports on trip to Chicago


Fri, Oct 30th, 2009
Posted in Government

It was a very routine night at the Spring Valley City Council on Monday. City Administrator Deb Zimmer reported on the trip to Chicago taken by city officials. The visit was a required trip by the Department of Commerce through the Federal EDA for the Industrial Park Expansion. The meeting included the city engineer, project designer, on site inspector, administrator and finance director. Many of the roles are grouped together such as Zimmer, who is filling the roles of administrator, finance director and designated grant applicant.

Zimmer said, "It was a good meeting, everything went well." The next step in the process is to approve a bid packet. The meeting itself lasted two and one half hours. The officials flew to Chicago and back the same day.

Quarterly ambulance write-offs were approved to the tune of $14,743 so far this year. The total of uncollectible write-offs is $34,542.07.

There are two openings on the City Planning Commission and one of them was filled Monday night. Mayor Struzyk had spoken to Todd Jones and he had indicated he would be interested in one of the positions, so he was appointed by the mayor. There is one more open seat and that will be advertised for.

John Fenske brought the council up to date on the parks department. He said that the fall program is ended and the new pool has been winterized. Fenske was assisted by a representative of the company that did the installation this summer. He also said that the new railing has been put up at the Community Center and new counter tops are being installed in the bathrooms.

Library Director, Dianne Swenson-Sikkink, told the council that she had to have Sheldon Plumbing and Heating install a roof vent repair and an exhaust to the bathroom. The total bill was $1,400.29 and was approved as a non-budgeted expense by the Council.

A reminder: the final budget adoption will happen on December 14th.
