The council gave approval to the Spring Valley VFW club for a Class “B” Gambling Permit at the Old Tyme Saloon.

Approval was given to the Racks Bar and Grill to hold a public dance June 14 in the parking lot.

At least two proposals were brought forth on concrete work at the pool. BTR Construction submitted a proposal for $3,190 and another for $5,290. There is also a proposal for $560 for digging out fill if the contractor does the work.

The second proposal was from Bruce Kraut Construction LLC and the total of that proposal is $6,324.00.

Clarification on the low quote is being sought.
