The Spring Valley City Council met on Monday, June 9 and approved the bid of $222,233.94 from Doyle Connor Company for the North Broadway Concrete Paving. The acceptance of Doyle Connor’s bid was recommendation by Bolton &Menk, consulting Engineers in Rochester. The final completion date was moved to August 14 to accommodating Ag Days.

Friday July 11 is the deadline for applying for the job of a full-time ambulance director position. In the resolution passed by the council states: “This position will perform supervisory and managerial work overseeing the operation of the Spring Valley Ambulance Service.
