The Spring Valley City Council met on Monday, June 9 and approved the bid of $222,233.94 from Doyle Connor Company for the North Broadway Concrete Paving. The acceptance of Doyle Connor’s bid was recommendation by Bolton &Menk, consulting Engineers in Rochester. The final completion date was moved to August 14 to accommodating Ag Days.

Friday July 11 is the deadline for applying for the job of a full-time ambulance director position. In the resolution passed by the council states: “This position will perform supervisory and managerial work overseeing the operation of the Spring Valley Ambulance Service. Minimum job requirements include Nationally Registered EMT certification and five years of related experience. Applications must be made on the City of Spring Valley’s application forms. The application forms and complete job description are available at Spring Valley City Hall or at www.springvalley.govoffice.com.”

The job description was changed to eliminate the duties associated with Emergency Management. Many of the council members stated their opinions that there are too many duties for one person to handle. Jim Cooper has had those duties included in his job description for several years.

City Administrator Deb Zimmer stated that they will be interviewing candidates as soon as the deadline is met.

The council also had a request from Jim Cooper regarding and upgrade to a server in a “cloud server. “The system would speed the computer useage for Val when she could do her work anywhere,” according to Cooper. Council members exchanged glances and questions. One of the questions was where does the private information go now and where on the cloud would it be? Deb Zimmer motioned to the sky and said, “It would be in a cloud just up there in a cloud.” Members decided more information was needed and was the upgrade worth the cost of $1,495.

Approval was given to Liquor License Renewals to Valley Lanes, Rack’s and TJ’s. There is a new license issued to a Liquor License for the Rockabilly Saloon.
