Jennifer Nelson representing the Southeast Minnesota Initiative Fund appeared before the council and explained the objectives of the organization in the coming year. She said that the priorities would be Economic Development and Early Childhood. Funding for the projects will come through SMIF to individual Counties. Fillmore is in line for approximately $80,000.

Board member Sue Kolling said that Farmland Retention will be another subject. That consists of farmers that give a gift for land in hopes that it will be retained by members of the family to keep values and traditions in the rural area.

David Wetter appeared before the council to address the possibility of having their property annexed into the city of Spring Valley. His property 2310 West Tracy road is currently surrounded by the city. As part of the action Mayor Struzyk said he would be meeting with Public Utilities next month to discuss providing water from utilities and sewer to be provided by the city. There is approximately 11 acres that serve as open space for the eight horses on the property. There will be a conditional use permit that will have to be obtained through the Planning and Zoning Commission for final approval.

The upcoming budgets and work sessions to deal with LGA funds which have decreased over the past three years.

The South Park might be seeing some permanent toilets in the near future to get rid of the porta potties. The city is currently spending $500 per month for rental of the Porta potties. The council discussed the hesitancy of people at the park to use the portables and inquiring into the costs that might be realized by making the upgrade.

The concession stand came up as a discussion item. The city is considering to hire part time summer help to work in the stand. Mayor Struzyk said that perhaps different church groups could volunteer to staff in and donate their hours.

Spring Valley Ambulance Association received permission from the Council to send one of their ambulances to Grand Meadow, Minn. to take part in a disaster drill in September. Council didn’t have a problem if it didn’t result in some staffing issues in Spring Valley.
