Bids were approved Monday night at Spring Valley City Council for replacement of the steel doors at the swimming pool. According to Park Director John Fenske the old doors are the original ones that were installed when the pool was built. Valley Home Improvement bid the doors at $13,768 plus a $1,000 bid to install the doors.

Fire Department transfers money to Spring Valley

Ambulance Association

The Council also approved a donation of $2,500 from the Fire Department Donation Account to the Spring Valley Ambulance Association to help pay for the equipment to equip the rehab trailer. Chief Chris Czapiewski said that the trailer will be available to any location within the service area. It will enable firemen or other workers to go inside the structure and get out of the weather.

EDA Action

The latest on the EDA loan to the Root River Country Club: Previously the County Commissioner had indicated they would pick up 50 percent of the cost but has now reduced that amount to 25 percent. Dollar wise it went from a guarantee of $17,500 to $8,750. The loan from the EDA will be approved with those guarantees included.

The EDA is also recommending to the Council to allow the EDA to reapply for USDA, RBEG funds for the Industrial Park and/or city expansions project based on the past success of the 2009-2012 program that assisted three area businesses. Matching grant dollars of 20 percent ($55,400) and a resolution are needed by City Council to support the application.

Spring Cleanup is being planned.

Back by popular demand the city will once again sponsor the City Wide Cleanup in May. It doesn’t come without costs. City Administrator Deb Zimmer says that it will cost between $4,000 and $5,000. She is trying to get those costs lowered by taking the junk to LeRoy Metals rather than Waste Management.

301 Center Ave cannot be burned

A little update on the structure at 301 Center Avenue. At the last meeting Council voted to have the fire department burn the building but since then an inspection of the property will not allow that to happen. Therefore the house needs to be demolished. Administrator Zimmer said, “The structure is a definite health and safety issue.” It was not announced when the action will occur.

A day to help the environment

Councilman Jones said that the creek cleanup in Spring Valley is now set for April 7. He said that they need a lot of volunteers to do the job. Sounds like a perfect outing for a nice day and doing something to improve our parks and waters.
