Spring Valley looking to become “Shovel Ready”

What does it take to make Spring Valley attractive to companies that are home grown or looking to move into the city?

At the City Council meeting some eye opening thoughts came from Kevin Kelleher of the State of Minnesota certified Development Site Program to make them “Shovel Ready.” Kelleher said that there are some necessary steps to move forward.

He said to have a website that makes our town look like it has a definite desire for Economic Development. The City will need a consultant to guide the community through the process. The estimated cost of a consultant is $3,000. It will be necessary to make the site ready with utilities, zoning, etc. There are 15 states that have comparable programs one of which is located in Fairmont. He cited St. Cloud which has embarked on the development route. “They are Shovel Ready” and are in the process of obtaining 100 jobs bringing in 20 million dollars.

Other business at the meeting included a request from John Fenske that the third softball field be named Del Bicknese Field in honor of the man who spent so much time promoting softball. The Council will consider the request.

Fenske also said that the bowling alley’s sewer backup up ended in the basement of the community center. It cost $4,700 to clean up the mess and the bowling alley will be asked to help plug the line and agree that the next time it backs up that they will absorb the cost.

Chad Hindt told the Council that the street department will be filling potholes this week along with getting the sweeper on the streets. Signs will also be placed on the trails.

The Council also approved the purchase of a new copy machine from Tri State Business Machines in Rochester. The price tag was $4,960 with a five year agreement. The old copier was 8 years old. The purchase of the new copier will save the City $560 in maintenance fees.

City Administrator Deb Zimmer reminded the council that the City Wide Cleanup on Saturday, April 27th from 10a.m. to 1 p.m.
