The Spring Valley City Council met on Wednesday and accepted the resignation of Dave Schopper’s from the Street Department. The Council thanked Schoppers for the many years he was employed by the city. As a result of his resignation the Council will be accepting applications for a Maintenance Worker position. The position is full time and the duties include the maintenance of city owned buildings, parks and streets. Duties will also include servicing the light to heavy duty city equipment. Applications for employment will be accepted until 3 p.m. Friday, June 22, 2012.

It was also decided that the city will be advertising 30 days for bids on the property at 301 Griswold. The city is hoping that either a modular home or a regular home gets built on the property. Initially the city will be placing a $15,000 special assessment to pay for the $20,000 that the city has invested on the site.

Approval was given by the Council to approve liquor license renewals for Tooties, Johnny Ringos, Old Tyme Saloon and TJ Liquor. All renewals are approved pending all the required paperwork is completed.
