Spring Valley Council deals with routine business


Fri, May 2nd, 2008
Posted in Government

Mainly routine business at the Spring Valley City Council meeting. A resolution was passed approving write-offs of certain uncollectible ambulance accounts. The total write-off for 2008 so far is $11,204.77. In 2007 those write-offs amounted to $84,781.54. The resolution can write-off certain bills due the City of Spring Valley for services rendered through the Ambulance Service which are uncollectible for various reasons. It lists those when all means of collection have been exhausted.

• The City Council also approved a resolution Supporting State Scenic Byway Designation Billboard Limitation. The legislation would further prohibit billboards on State Highways in the City limits of communities. Specifically, the City Council approved the legislation with the provision that the Industrial Park can continue to advertise lots for sale and development.

• Approval was given for an application for display of fireworks on July 3rd. The application is being made from the Spring Valley Christian Center. A similar display of fireworks was done last year and Law Enforcement indicated there were no problems associated with that permit.

• Parks Director John Fenske reported to the Council that the tennis courts at the south park are in terrible condition. He said that big chunks of the blacktop are breaking loose and are a definite safety hazards. He has contacted McGill Construction and Bly Construction to get an estimated cost for replacing the black top with concrete and will report back at the next Council meeting. He said the blacktop was put in 10 years ago and at that time was a 7 year fix.

• In a related matter, Fenske said that with the proposed pool the operating costs per year will be $120,000.00 up $70,000.0 per year to the taxpayers. He reminded everyone that there will be another meeting of people interested in building a new pool. City Administrator Deb Zimmer said that at the pool meetings only 25% of those present are from the City. She said that taxpayers will be facing a 7-10% increase in property taxes if a new pool is built.

The Legion has purchased two grills for the SEMCAC senior dining center at the Community Center. As part of a negotiated agreement with SEMCAC the office will be enlarged and made to contribute to a more efficient area.

Troy Lange, Spring Valley Fire Chief spoke to the Council and said that there has been one fire call this month and that he will be exploring t .....
