Spring Valley capital improvement plan discussed

Posted in Spring Valley Government

The Spring Valley City Council met in regular session on June 8, with all members present. Mike Bubany gave an Excel spreadsheet presentation showing the various projects Spring Valley aims to complete within the next five to ten years, including Lyndale, Washington, Creek Crossing, and Cemetery Road. He stated that according to Standard & Poor parameters, the city has low debt. He explained that his presentation “is not a commitment to do anything, this is simply a planning guide” to help the city sketch out a long-term plan of which projects are prioritized to be done in the upcoming years. He also summarized, “You’re going to pay more, it’s just a question of how much more you’re willing to pay” as the city deals with budgetary issues each year. Council member Bill Bires responded, “I’d like to see us proceed as much as we can,” but he also said he’s concerned that the city not let the General Fund dip too low.

Next, the council approved prior meeting minutes and June preliminary Accounts Payable. In the visitors’ portion of the meeting, one citizen (Eileen) spoke, asking the council about mannequins that she said belong to the Ambulance Association. Mayor Struzyk stated that all such matters were to have been addressed by no later than the previous council meeting, and that if anyone has further items to negotiate, they should be handled through the respective attorneys.

The council approved two proposals from Bolton & Menk regarding two projects (Lyndale Avenue and Fremont Street). There was also mention of an informational meeting regarding the Lyndale project, which will be held June 17 at 6 p.m. in the ambulance facility. Deb Zimmer stressed that this will be only an informational meeting, not a public hearing. She said council members are welcome to attend, but not required. Several members indicated their interest. Next, the council approved renewal of liquor licenses for Johnny Ringo’s, TJ’s, Rack, and Valley Lanes.

The council then discussed a proposal by Bargen Incorporated regarding asphalt pavement maintenance services. Deb Zimmer summarized that that while Bargen’s proposed cost is considerable higher than the competitor, that’s because the competitor proposed to repair only the large cracks, whereas Bargen plans to fill all the cracks. She said the city has found that in previous years, “Bargen’s products have held together better”. The council voted to appr .....
