Spring Valley City Council raises ambulance service rates

Posted in Spring Valley Government

The Spring Valley City Council met on Monday, February 10 and had a short meeting.

Council Sets Rates for

Ambulance Service

The council approved changes to the Rates Charged For Services for the Spring Valley Area Ambulance Service. In an effort to keep the rates charged consistent with costs, the council set mileage at $17 per loaded mile. The BLS Emergency Base Rate was set at $925 and the non BLS Emergency Base Rate at $700. The ALS Emergency Base Rate was approved at $1,200. The rates were suggested by Ambulance Director Jim Cooper at a council meeting earlier in the year. It was noted that many of the old rates were not updated for several years.

Garbage Issues

Dick Harreld appeared before the council and voiced concern that the Waste Management service is not providing service to the residents of the city. He says that there are many times that pickup days are being shifted around and garbage gets left on the curbs and blowing down the street. Harreld said, “I think that Waste Management is taking advantage of the citizens. It’s time their contract is reviewed.”

Mayor Struzyk asked City Administrator Deb Zimmer if her office is handling this and she stated that she had sent a letter to Waste Management and that they had not replied to her concerns.

License Renewals

Cigarette License renewals were granted to Old Tyme Saloon, Fowler Oil, Sunshine Foods, and Dollar General.

Almanzo 100 Housing

Deb Zimmer updated the council on the Almanzo 100 Housing and that she has had several people ask about overnight housing for the racers coming in for the weekend. She indicated that last year people were staying in area cities, but if there is adequate housing in the city, they could be close to the action.

Council member Todd Jones told the council that a recent meeting was held with the Rural and City Fire Departments. He said, “The meeting went well and we adopted an agreement for services.”

The hearing for regulations on housing rentals will be held on March 10.
