Fri, Aug 1st, 2014
Posted in Spring Valley Government

The Spring Valley City Council is in the process of hiring a new ambulance director. Since Jim Cooper announced in April that he was going to retire on August 15 the council has been working on finding a replacement. After the advertising phase for the post, interviews were held and eventually making an offer to one of the candidates. At the council meeting on Monday night Todd Jones announced that they had five applicants and interviewed two of them. He stated that he has spoken to the top contender. An offer was made to Ryan Marking of Zumbrota Area Ambulance, but Marking declined the offer. City Administrator Deb Zimmer reported that after four months of searching for an ambulance director the process will start over or the council will come up with some temporary solution. The council might need to look at other services, such as Gold Cross Ambulance during the interment.

Television Inspection of Sewer Lines to be Continued

The council has approved the expenditure of $50,000 for an extension of the program to inventory sewer lines in the city. The cost could possibly be covered by a grant but there is nothing to guarantee that.

New Street Sweeper to be

Purchased

Chad Hindt appeared before the council and told members that it’s time for a new street sweeper. The current sweeper becomes more of a maintenance issue each year. Hindt said that he would prefer to purchase a 2006 Elgin Pelican at a price of $65,000. The sweeper being replaced is a 1997 Crosswind and there will be a $6,000 trade in with a purchase price of $59,000.
