Spring Valley prepares for summer activities


Fri, Mar 12th, 2010
Posted in Government

Summer must surely be near as the items on the city council agenda dealt with upcoming events that lend themselves to warm weather. Faith United Methodist Church in Spring Valley would like approval to organize outdoor concerts during the months of June, July and August. The concerts would be held from 7:00 PM to no later than 10:00 PM and would be held on the church property located at 617 Maple Lane. They hope to obtain a semi-trailer for the musicians to utilize as a stage. The children's program is interested in providing pop, water and popcorn as a fundraiser to the attendees. The request was unanimously passed with the provision that letters be sent to the surrounding neighbors to inform them of these concerts.

The public fishing platform to be built on Spring Valley Creek has the approval of the council. The DNR will provide the materials to build the platform and the city will assist with installation, providing personnel and equipment when feasible. The platform will be handicapped accessible and the city will construct and pay for a plank walkway connecting the fishing platform to an accessible parking space. The state will provide and install the appropriate signage for the site and the state will retain ownership for the fishing platform and assist the city with major structural repairs. The platform will be located just south of the location of the First Baptist Church which was recently removed.

The next order of business had to do with passing a resolution expressing appreciation and accepting the donation from the Spring Valley Area Ambulance Association. The Ambulance Association has donated $1,476 that was obtained through charitable gambling and with it wishes to purchase two portable EX560 radios. The council acknowledged the donation with gratitude and appropriated the donation toward the purchase of the two portable radios.

Plans for the new pavilion at Willow Park are moving forward. A model of the proposed pavilion was shown at the council meeting and can be seen at City Hall. Norbert Skaran of Ostrander donated the model and plans to the city. Bids will be sent out for two options. One will be for the pavilion only and the second bid will include open-air wings on either side of the pavilion. There is some money left over from the Trail fund, which can be used toward the project, but funding would have to be raised to pay for the entire project.
