Antique & coffee shop to open in Spring Valley


Mon, Nov 17th, 2014
Posted in Spring Valley Government

A brief regular meeting of the Spring Valley city council was held on Monday, November 10. Members present included mayor Jim Sturzyk, Tony Archer, Bill Bires, city administrator Deb Zimmer, and Todd Jones. Following the Pledge of Allegiance and call to order, the council approved minutes of the previous meeting and OK’d November preliminary accounts payable. Next, the floor was offered for visitors’ input, but none was offered.

Item 2014-22. Deb Zimmer said the public hearing was held on November 5 regarding the conditional use permit for Joan and Wayne Musel to operate an antique/coffee shop at 301 South Section Avenue. Deb said there were no apparent issues, all standard expectations are in place, and she recommended the resolution for approval. The council voted to accept the resolution, and Mayor Sturzyk congratulated the Musel’s, saying, “Now you can go to work. I hope it works out for you.”

The council next considered a memo from Angie Jarrett, ambulance director, which recommends two changes to the current billing structure. Council members said they felt Angie’s memo was well presented, and made good sense. The Council voted to accept her proposed changes.

Next, Deb summarized a canvas of the city’s election results from November 4. A total of 873 ballots were cast in the city. 1270 persons were previously registered to vote, and an additional 93 persons registered on election day. All council members who were running for re-election (Sturzyk, Archer, and Jones) were re-elected. The council voted to accept the election results as presented.

Item 2014-23 was a proposal to formally accept the resolution regarding the refinancing of the city’s 2007A bond, which was discussed at the previous council meeting. The refinancing will save the city about $36,000 over the next nine years. The council still felt this was a good idea, and voted to approve the plan.

Deb Zimmer said she’s working on finalizing the 2015 budget. No other significant items were brought forward in departmental reports, and the meeting was adjourned at about 6:10 p.m. The next regular meeting will be 6 p.m. on Monday, November 24.
