Posted in Spring Valley Government

It was mostly routine business at the Spring Valley City Council meeting Monday night. There were the usual approval of new year items.

The city had recently asked for bids on materials to build a bridge for the trails over the creek by the ambulance building. The city asked for such things as 27 pieces of I Beam and several smaller pieces of I Beam. There was 1,860 feet of planking, foundation pipe, there was channel iron cross bracing in the quote as well. To put it all together so it performs in a safe manner it was to be assembled and put in place. The total cost of the project was to be $31,310.

Todd Jones; “This bridge would hold driving a Mack Truck over it.”

Mayor Struzyk to Zimmer; “How much money do we have in the trail budget?”

“About 25 thousand,” replied Zimmer.

A voice from the back of the room was Ron Merkel; “Would it get you closer to your budget if I dropped the price from $31,316 to $29,310 and then I can take it out of my budget?” Silence filled the room and then the Council accepted the bid. You could hear the reaction as thanks were extended to Ron Merkel for his act of citizenship took the limelight that night.

The City Council also passed a resolution naming the Spring Valley Tribune the official newspaper. The Official Depository was named. There is the Security State Bank, Home Federal Savings Bank, First State Bank and the First National Bank.
