Spring Valley looks at transportation issues


Fri, Mar 1st, 2013
Posted in Spring Valley Government

The Transportation Director of SEMCAC appeared before the Spring Valley City Monday night to discuss the possibility of increased transportation services in the Spring Valley area. Erlene Welshons is the Transportation Director for SEMCAC and she said that residents will be receiving a brochure that will identify unmet transportation needs in the Spring Valley area.

According to Welshons, SEMCAC has received additional funding which could possibly provide an increase in opportunities to ride the SEMCAC in the area. There could be four hours per day three days a week of service. As for cost, that could be $2.00 in town and $2.75 outside the city. There will be a local match in addition to the funding from MNDOT. The survey being conducted by SEMCAC will assess the needs of the residents and then the local match will be determined. SEMCAC will also be hiring a CDL licensed driver who will line up volunteer drivers.

The Council also approved a contract with Fillmore County to provide ambulance service in their designated area.

•The contractor (Spring Valley) agrees to provide efficient and prompt ambulance service to all persons within their area of service in Fillmore County.

•The Contractor shall have not less than one licensed ambulance in service and capable of rendering efficient services, fully equipped to meet the requirements of the State of Minnesota, Emergency Medical Services Regulator Board and equipped with mobile communications between the ambulance vehicles and law enforcement agencies.

•The contractor shall keep and maintain the ambulance and equipment.

•Contractor agrees to provide one driver and attendant to staff said ambulance on each call.

•Contractor shall provide ambulance service on a 24-hour basis 7 days a week.

In the contract there are insurance requirements with limits of not less than one hundred thousand for bodily injury or death of one person, and five hundred thousand for bodily injury or death resulting from any one accident and for the sum of at least fifty thousand for damages to property from any one accident.

Under the terms of the agreement, the county will make one payment for a total of $4,500.00 for the period through December 31, 2013. The county will also furnish a 24-hour answering service and dispatch service through the Sheriff’s Office.
