Sewer Fund rates increasing in Spring Valley


Fri, Oct 18th, 2013
Posted in Spring Valley Government

The Spring Valley City Council met on Monday night October 14. A very positive step was taken to assist property owners in voting in favor of moving ahead on the EDA Revolving Loan Request. The council approved action that would move funds from the Revolving Loan Funds. There will be $30,000 from the original request and an additional $35,000 making a total of $65,000 at 1 percent interest. The action will provide access to funds to rehabilitate property in the downtown. The motion approving the funds was made by Tony Archer. Mayor Struzyk spoke in favor of the action and said that there are several people that are looking forward to making a difference.

The Sewer Fund will be seeing a boost in charges. The last sewer rate was increased on April 11, 2011 and now it needs to be increased again. The increase is necessary to avoid potential deficit spending in the Sewer Fund. It was set at $0.25 to the base rate and $0.08 per 1,000 gallons. The new base rate will go to $16.84 and the 1,000 gallon rate will be set $4.02. The rate increase is effective January 1, 2014.

City Administrator Deb Zimmer handed out a proposed ordinance for the regulation, maintenance, and occupancy of rental housing in the city of Spring Valley. The purpose of the proposed ordinance is to protect the public health, safety and the general welfare of the people of the City. Mayor Struzyk said that he had been given some pictures of some of the rental properties in the city and that they are; “not fit to live in.” If adopted the ordinance would protect the character and stability of residential areas within the city. It also would correct and prevent housing conditions that adversely affect or are likely to adversely affect the life, safety, general welfare and health, including the physical, mental, and social well being of persons occupying dwellings within Spring Valley. There would be minimum standards for cooking, heating, and sanitary equipment necessary to the health and safety of occupants of buildings. Minimum standards for light and ventilation, minimum space standards and maintenance of existing residential building prevent slums and blight and preserving the value of land and buildings throughout the City. The proposed ordinance will be reviewed by the council at a further date. The council assured that there would be ample opportunity for public input.

The City recently put a squad on bids and when the bids were opened they fou .....
