Light agenda for Spring Valley Council


Mon, Nov 16th, 2015
Posted in Spring Valley Government

The Spring Valley City Council met in regular session on Monday, November 9, 2015 at 6 p.m. Members in attendance were Tony Archer, Mayor Jim Struzyk, Bill Bires, Jeff Vehrenkamp, and City Administrator Deb Zimmer. Todd Jones was absent. Following the Pledge of Allegiance, approval of prior meeting minutes, and approval of preliminary November Accounts Payable, the meeting was open for visitors to address the council, but none had signed up to speak.

Next, the council considered an increase of $50 in the Fire Relief Benefit amount. The council voted unanimously to approve Resolution 2015-37, which states in part, “Whereas after review of the MBW-15 (Maximum Benefit Worksheet 2015) and a review of investments, the Fire Relief Board and members of the Fire Relief Association approved an increase in benefit level of $50, raising the benefit level from $1,410 to $1,460 upon approval of the Spring Valley City Council.” It was noted that the most recent increase in benefit amount had been in 2008, prior to this increase.

The council then discussed Fund Transfers. Deb Zimmer explained that the city proposed to transfer $263,875 to the Construction Fund. She explained, “It’s a little more than we’d planned, but that will close it out.” She also asked the council to consider transferring $35,000 from the North Park Bind Fund to the TIF fund, and she said, “We had planned to do that”. The council voted to approve both of these fund transfers as described.

Deb then brought up that “Chad has no heat” and she said the city had obtained an estimate from Winona Heat to replace “just the controls” on the current furnace at a cost of $16,200. But she said Ryan Ruben submitted a bid to install a whole new furnace for $8,700. Another bid had been sought, but was not yet received at the time of the council meeting. It was noted that the high cost estimate from Winona Heat is because the old furnace system is so out of date, and therefore replacement parts are hard to come by, and therefore expensive. After some discussion, the council voted to approve a purchase from the General Fund of up to $8,700 for a new furnace for the building.

Deb then summarized that the city will start working on a Safe Routes to School project, which is due January 8. Mayor Struzyk then asked Deputy Rasmussen about a vehicle that is apparently still in violation of the city’s “junk ordinance”, and it was determ .....
