A regular meeting of the Spring Valley city council was held on December 8 at 6 p.m. Following the Call to Order and Pledge of Allegiance, the council approved minutes of the previous meeting, and approved December preliminary accounts payable, which totaled $60,417.38. The next order of business was to open the floor for visitors, but none had signed up to speak to the council.

The council then reviewed the proposed 2015 budget, and Deb Zimmer discussed two forms that compared 2014 budgetary numbers against those in the 2015 proposed budget. There were only a few significant expenditures changes noted, including $140,000 in the 2015 budget for purchase of an ambulance. In revenues, the 2014 tax levy was $914,632, and for 2015 it would be $970,093. The difference is due to a $30,000 increase in legal expense and a $25,000 increase in street capital maintenance. In explaining some of the 2015 proposed capital expenditures, Zimmer told of $12,000 in planned expenditures for playground equipment (the South Park orange playground) and noted, “I have a grant from SVACF for $6,000 and an application in to Fisher Foundation for $6,000.” She also described $25,000 available in the budget for squad car replacement, and stated, “We may want to wait until the new sheriff is in place to discuss the replacement and determine if additional funds are needed, in which case this may have to wait until 2016.” The Council then voted to approve the resolution certifying the 2014 final property tax levy and adopting the 2015 Budget.

Next, the council considered a resolution adjusting the pay scale for the city of Spring Valley. Zimmer stated that the form needs to be corrected to show a 3% increase, not 3.5%. The council voted to approve the proposal, with the correction mentioned. The council then considered a resolution imposing special assessments for work ordered done. Four parcels were shown on Exhibit A (three for mowing, and one for junk violation) totaling $2120. Zimmer explained, “They are for properties we mow and those we’ve done clean up. They have the option of paying it off by the end of the year, but thus far none of them have done that.” The council voted to approve the resolution.

Next, Zimmer discussed suggested transfers of funds, and the council voted to approve resolutions 2014-27 and 2014-28 to commit capital revenue sources and specific revenue sources. The council then l .....
