New playground equipment for Spring Valley


Mon, Mar 2nd, 2015
Posted in Spring Valley Government



On February 23, the Spring Valley City Council met in regular session with all members in attendance. Following the Pledge of Allegiance and approval of February Accounts Payable, the council considered a proposal from Administrator Deb Zimmer that the city OK the purchase of new playground equipment. She explained that the city has grants for the equipment (a $6,000 grant from the Spring Valley Area Community Foundation, a $6,000 grant from the Fisher Foundation, and an expected $12,000 match from the city). She said the proposed purchase would replace the orange equipment at South Park which had been supplied by the Jaycees 25 or 26 years ago, and which is quite worn out.

And asked the city to consider approving the purchase of the “Option 2” equipment, which includes a large tube (the representative said he would try to get the tube included at no charge). Zimmer said this company was the supplier of the playground equipment currently in use at Grant Street and Spring Street. After brief discussion, the council voted unanimously to approve the purchase of the Option 2 equipment, at a cost of up to $22,000.

The council also approved an annual County Ambulance Agreement, which Zimmer said was identical to the agreement used in previous years. The floor was opened to visitors, and Jennifer Lang addressed the Council, saying that most members of the ambulance crew want to work cooperatively with the City, and she said that some comments in the newspaper are representing only a minority of the Ambulance Association, rather than the entire group.

In Department Head reports, Chad Hindt reported that wood had been cleared from the compost site, trees have been trimmed, and streets are being cleaned as weather allows. Tony Archer reported on behalf of Jenny Simon, saying that the library installed six new Dell desktops, and has implemented a new internet usage policy. Troy Lange reported that the fire department had a quiet month, and that agility tests are being completed on four new crew members. Zimmer reported the FEMA meeting regarding flood mitigation will be February 24. She also said she will attend one or two days of the MCFOA Conference being held March 18-20, and reminded the council about the Board of Review meeting, April 13 at 5:30 p.m.

Bill Bires and Mayor Struzyk both thanked the many Ambulance Association personnel for attending the meeting. Bires said, “I appreciate .....
