Spring Valley approves ambulance management contract


Mon, May 18th, 2015
Posted in Spring Valley Government

On May 11, the Spring Valley City Council met at 5 p.m. to consider a proposed agreement between Gold Cross Ambulance Service and the city of Spring Valley. A regular council meeting followed at 6 p.m. Members present were Tony Archer, Todd Jones, Mayor Jim Struzyk, Jeff Vehrenkamp, and City Administrator Deb Zimmer. The council voted to approve the contract with Gold Cross, which outlines “ambulance service team captain and ambulance management support services”.

The regular meeting opened with the Pledge of Allegiance; the council then approved prior meeting minutes and preliminary accounts payable. Next, the council formally adopted Resolution 2015-19, which is the plan discussed at the April 27 meeting, in which the city will “crossover re-fund” the $861,000 General Obligation bonds.

Deb Zimmer then shared the Pay Estimate #1 for the Industrial Park Third Phase, which totals $210,631.29, to Griffin Construction Company. Zimmer said, “The work out there is progressing nicely”.

The council also voted to close Fund 254 and transfer those funds (roughly $265,000) to Fund 414, which is the Industrial Park Expansion Construction Fund. Zimmer said this is what the council has previously discussed and planned to do.

An update on the Ambulance Pancake Breakfast was given, and council members were invited to help out with the event, as able. The council voted to approve closure of the downtown one-way street from 6-9:30 a.m. on the morning of the Almonzo Race. Jones and Struzyk encouraged citizens to keep their yards and grounds looking nice, especially for events such as the Almonzo Race, which will bring hundreds of participants and spectators into town. The meeting adjourned about 6:10 p.m. Due to Memorial Day, the next regular council meeting will be Wednesday, May 27 at 6 p.m.
