Spring Valley City Council Report: Street project specs approved


Fri, Feb 29th, 2008
Posted in Government

The Spring Valley City Council met in regular session and passed a resolution Accepting Plans & Specifications and authorized bids on the Hudson Street project scheduled for this year. The estimates came out lower than originally calculated, according to Yaggy Colby, engineers in charge of the project. The project will be completed in two phases and there will be two alternates, one with blacktop surface streets and one with concrete. The bids will be awarded at the meeting May 16th.

Utility Improvement Project Payment

A payment of $31,058.27 was made to Road Constructors as part of the 2007 Utility Improvement Project. According to City Administrator Deb Zimmer, there is still an adequate amount of holdback pending completion of the project. This was the sewer and storm sewer project that started at 63/16 and ended on Tracey Road.

New EMT

Francis Ruehmann of Ostrander was hired as a new EMT. Ruehmann was interviewed by Councilman Tony Archer and Ambulance Director Jim Cooper prior to the recommendation. According to Cooper, Ruehmann will be going through an orientation session this next week and is anticipated to be on the schedule within a week or so.

To Las Vegas

Two members of King 11 were approved to go to Las Vegas to the National Association of Broadcasters Convention. Named in the request were Rick Toews and Bob Tiffenbacher. Mayor Struzyk and Councilman Tony Archer voted for the proposal and Jason Holland abstained because he might be one of the participants if one of those named does not go. Only two councilmen were voting because Bill Bires and Jeff Vehrenkamp were not in attendance. The amount approved was $1,000 for air fare, rental car and hotel. Struzyk said "it is in the budget".
