Spring Valley permits EDA to award grants


Fri, Jan 29th, 2010
Posted in Government

It was a night for housekeeping for the Spring Valley City Council. Council members approved a resolution approving ambulance write-offs. The total write-offs per this resolution amount to $10,521.78. Write-offs dating back to 2008 were $410.73, resulting in total adjusted write-offs for 2008 at $77,646.98. The total write-offs for 2009 were $44,653.12. These are bills that are determined to be uncollectible by the ambulance service.

The Spring Valley EDA brought a resolution to the council to permit the EDA to award two grants for the new industrial park expansion project. The eligible businesses' must be located in the city of Spring Valley at the new industrial park. Each business will receive a $10,000.00 grant. The total grant for the two businesses is $20,000. The grant money will be paid to the engineering, drafting or other professional business once the business opens for operation.

Approval for grant money will be to increase the number of jobs within the city limits of Spring Valley. Applicants must fill out the USDA Spring Valley grant application form in its entirety, sign it and submit it to the Economic Development Authority for review prior to 5-1-2012.

The city council also approved the Historical Society funding request of $12,500.00 to pay for staff and other operating costs throughout the season.

Librarian Dianne Swenson-Sikkink reported that the library has been busy and that the library continues to grow, especially in exchanging books with other locations. She also stated that the Security State Bank made a donation of $349.00 for the summer reading program.

Ambulance Director Jim Cooper reported that they finished 2009 with 423 calls, 30 fewer than 2008, and they currently have 28 EMT's and one First Responder. Regina Haeflinger recently passed her EMT test and they are just waiting for the completed paperwork. "14 of our staff have gone through the EMT refresher class and are awaiting their cards," according to Cooper. "Coverage still remains an issue," said Cooper and "so far we have managed to cover all our calls, but we have come close to calling for assistance a couple of times."
