Spring Valley City Council discuss plans for Tracey Road


Fri, Sep 12th, 2008
Posted in Government

The proposed improvements on west Tracey Road drew some interested property owners at the September 8 Spring Valley City council meeting, who wanted more information on what the City's plan was going to be to put utilities down the center of the road. A representative of Yaggy Colby was on hand to respond to questions.

David Wetter lives at 2310 W. Tracey Road and asked about the assessments that will be connected with this project. He was told that there will be no assessments from the City and that the project would include utilities down the center of Tracey Road and re-surfacing of the traveled portion of the road.

The estimated cost of the project will be $1,706,721.06 and six lots will be affected.

Swimming Pool roof

The swimming pool roof became an item of discussion when City Administrator Deb Zimmer announced that the prices for a new steel roof are higher than anticipated.

Sentence to Service people are being used to tear off the current roof and there is a concern that if a new roof isn't installed fairly soon that weather will begin to get into conduit, pipes, etc. If that happens there will be additional problems and resultant expenses.

It was decided that Zimmer ask for sealed quotes not to exceed $50,000.00 for replacement of the roof. Insulation will not be included at this time but perhaps at a later date.

In a follow up to the Sentencing to Service Program in Spring Valley an agreement was signed between Spring Valley, the DNR and the City of Rushford. That agreement will cost the city $6,165.38 for its portion of the program.

Other Business

Smith Schafer presented their audit proposal and Council learned that it was going to be $3,000 higher than last year. The number presented and approved was $13,950.00.
