Spring Valley awards bid on sewer project


Fri, Apr 27th, 2007
Posted in Government

SPRING VALLEY - The Spring Valley City Council was pleased in the bids received for the upcoming storm sewer/sanitary sewer project. The engineer's estimate for the project was $1,236,771.10 and the low bidder was Road Constructors, Inc. with a bid of $859,864.70, which is $376,000.00 under the estimate. Bryan Holz of Yaggy Colby told the council that the bids were all good and that it is obvious Road Constructors, Inc. took considerable time in researching the project and coming up with the low bid. Holz and Deb Zimmer said that because of the size of this project, an inspector will be on the site all the time. The first phase in May will go from Highway 16 and 63 northwest to Farmer St. The second phase will begin at Farmer with the project ending at Tracey Road by the end of October. A pre-construction meeting will be held within a few days.

• There will be some new firefighters on the Spring Valley department within a short amount of time. Council member Tony Archer announced at the meeting that five new firefighters have been approved and placed on probation status. They are: Barb Landwehr, Dave Dyke, Matt Jacobson, Todd Jones, and Scott Sweeney. The new recruits will have to pass an agility test on May 2 and be First Responder certified within two years.

• Jim Cooper told council members that the City's Loss Control Representative will be paying a visit to the City next week. Josh Fitsch of the League of Minnesota Cities will be spending some time inspecting city facilities and ensuring that safety measures are being enforced. He will be in Ostrander on Tuesday and Spring Valley on Wednesday.

• Cooper also announced that the City of Spring Valley will be taking part in a disaster drill on June 4 at Good Earth Village. It will simulate a tornado strike at Good Earth as well as give firefighters an opportunity to exercise their skills in an intentional house burn. The exercise is expected to involve several public safety agencies.

• On Monday, April 30, Spring Valley will be hosting the SE Minnesota League meeting at the VFW club. The Mayor urged the council to attend. This is typically an opportunity for cities in SE Minnesota to share ideas and be briefed on new legislative issues.
