Spring Valley City Council discuses new swimming pool


Fri, Jan 18th, 2008
Posted in Government

The meeting of the Spring Valley City Council on Monday night was typical of the beginning of a new year. Committees were filled with new members and the legal steps of passing resolutions consumed most of the agenda.

The Mayor brought up the subject of a new swimming pool and said that he would like some input from the community regarding their ideas. The current pool was built in the late 70's and was heralded as the state's "First Solar Heated Swimming Pool". Since that time the pool has been continually updated and kept in operation. Now, with discussion on what to do with it will be open to the public. A meeting will be held at the Community Center on Wednesday, February 6th at 7:00pm.

The Spring Valley Tribune was named the official newspaper and Security State Bank was designated as the official depository of city funds for 2008. Home Federal Savings Bank was designated as the depository for the city's Payroll Account for the year.

The fee schedule for permits and licenses was passed. The fees remained the same as 2007. There are seven categories for liquor licenses and four possible fines for cats and dogs.

As part of a separate action the renewal of 3.2 Liquor Licenses for Kwik Trip, Inc and Valley Lanes was approved.

Also passed was a resolution providing for the Redemption and Prepayment of GO WWTP bonds for 2008. The prepayment will amount to $195,000.00. The original amount of the General Obligation Wastewater Refunding Bonds was dated February 1, 2002. The prepayment of the bonds will take the indebtedness off the books.

Aaron Kolling has approached the city EDA to lease the old Wastewater Treatment Plant building which is currently being used to store street department equipment in. It would be for a two year period with the first year lease payment of $100.00 per month and $200.00 the second year. Kolling will be required to wire the building for electricity and to insulate it. The furnace will also need to be upgraded. The lease with the city does require that when the lease is over in two years that all the improvements made remain with the building. Kolling hopes to move in on February 1st. There are some utility issues that need to be addressed. It seems as there is no sewer or water in the building as the main was discontinued several years ago. City officials will be discussing this with Kolling.

The 2008 appointments were announced by Mayor Struzyk.
