Industrial Park still a concern for Spring Valley


Fri, Oct 1st, 2010
Posted in Government



The Spring Valley City Council met in regular session on Monday night and dealt with a couple of issues. City Administrator Deb Zimmer had received a request from Brian and Jennifer Niemeyer of 800 S. Washington Ave. requesting the council vacate the alley off Fremont Street between Washington and Hudson Avenue. According to the letter, this would permit them to turn around trailers and equipment. The alley currently extends into their property line and has never been completed the full length. The request further states that to use the alley access they have to drive on Harlan Marchant's property for the part of the alley not complete to and from their house.

The adjoining property owners, Harlan Marchant, Florence Barcel and Chris Czapiewski attended the meeting and did not voice any objectives to vacating the alley but said they would look into the cost and procedures to acquire easements so the property lines are defined. After gathering more information the issue will be brought back to the City Council.

The Spring Valley Industrial Park project continues to be an item of concern by the council. The September payment has not been made yet because the contractor, Mr. Steve Jech of Jech Excavating, Inc., has failed to meet the time lines on finishing the project. According to the engineer, Brian Holtz, the company is four weeks behind schedule. City Administrator Deb Zimmer said that the contractor was to have submitted a revised schedule by September 20th and that has not been done. Hopefully a meeting with the contractor will clear up the matter.

Council did approve payment number four for the Spring Valley Industrial Park, pending approval of a new timetable.

Approval was also given for the Hudson/Courtland/Jefferson project pending approval of a final video.

Dianne Swenson-Sikkink of the library reported that the computer Internet situation has been resolved.

The hours also were changed from 1 to 8pm to noon to 7pm to better serve patrons over the noon hour.
