Spring Valley and Ambulance Association plan to meet


Mon, Feb 16th, 2015
Posted in Spring Valley Government



The recent decision for disassociation between the Spring Valley Area Ambulance Association (SVAAA) and the city was the main topic at the February 9 meeting of the Spring Valley City Council. The SVAAA had submitted a request for a meeting between two council members and two SVAAA members, without legal representation present, and with an impartial mediator to assist in mending the broken relationship between the two entities.

The SVAAA and the city council both mentioned inaccurate information that has inflamed the issues. City Attorney Scott Springer was asked for his opinion/input, and he summarized that for the city, the issue centered on “authorized personnel only” having access to city buildings and property.

The council members discussed the request, and were open to the idea of the meeting, agreeing that the SVAAA has done much for the city, and there was discussion about which council members would be the best choices for such a meeting. Council member Bill Bires stated, “I don’t have any problem working with the association. I hope we can work something out. I’d like to see it go forward.”

Council member Jeff Vehrenkamp concurred, saying, “I’d like to see everybody work together, but it’s gotta be…the association has to support the service.” Mayor Struzyk summarized that, “Nobody likes change, and the way it looks, Angie (Jarrett) has been taking the brunt of things, and it’s not fair to her.” He agreed that meeting with the association could be helpful, but said he prefers to find a mediator that both entities choose together.

A visitor made the comment that ambulance crew schedules have recently been underfilled partly due to the ongoing issues between the city and the Association. Angie Jarrett commented, “I have hired temporary help, one person, during the shortage… The schedules have been looking pretty good, and we have not missed a call.”

The council voted unanimously to table the issue until the next regular meeting, and to give the SVAAA a one-month extension on the previous “disassociation date” which had been originally set for February 28, but will now be the end of March.

Ann Priebe addressed the council about the Connect Trails Community Growth Initiative, a project to extend and connect the Spring Valley trail to other trails in a larger regional trail system. She explained the project’s b .....
