Spring Valley City Council organizes for 2014


Fri, Jan 17th, 2014
Posted in Spring Valley Government

The Spring Valley City Council met on January 13 and approved a long list of first of the year business. The minutes from the December 9 and December were approved. The January Preliminary Accounts Payables consisting of eight pages was approved along with the designation of the Spring Valley Tribune as the Official Newspaper.

The Security State Bank, Home Federal Savings Bank, First State Bank and the First National Bank were all designated as the official depositories of city funds for calendar year 2014 with Home Federal Savings Bank being designation as the depository of the city’s primary checking, Payroll and HRA accounts.

The corporate authorization resolution was approved in the names of Mayor Jim Struzyk and City Administrator Deb Zimmer. One of their duties is to endorse checks and orders for the payment of money or otherwise withdraw or transfer funds on deposit with this financial institution.

The list of required license fees and permits stretched from a $35 annual Cigarette License Fee to a $1,500 sewer connection fee. There are 24 different permits or fees that make up the list. It would appear as though the dogs and cats are under scrutiny. First of all a dog or cat license costs $10. The late fee is $25.00, the dog or cat shelter fee is $25 and a dog or cat at large is $25 for the first offense, $50 for the second offense and $75 for the third offense and the fourth offense amounts to $150. Other permits cover On Sale Liquor, Excavator, parking, obstructions, permit application fee, preliminary plat fee, zooming permits and special assessments. One permit that apparently missed the list is that of licenses for chickens. A quick check with Deb Zimmer indicated that the “hens should require a $10 permit.” Roosters are apparently excluded.

A resolution was passed which establishes coverage for injuries to elected and appointed officials.

Reimbursables were established for the city personnel policy. Mileage $0.56 per mile, dinner not to exceed $15 if travel is later than 6:00, lunch is $10 and breakfast not to exceed $7.00 if the employee left home before 6:00 a.m. The total combined reimbursement per day shall not exceed $32 and there is no alcoholic beverages. Overnight lodging cannot exceed $140 per night.

A resolution was passed approving write offs of certain uncollectible ambulance accounts with the Spring Valley Area Ambulance Service. The tot .....
