The Spring Valley City Council met on Wednesday and accepted the resignation of Dave Schopper’s from the Street Department. The Council thanked Schoppers for the many years he was employed by the city. As a result of his resignation the Council will be accepting applications for a Maintenance Worker position. The position is full time and the duties include the maintenance of city owned buildings, parks and streets. Duties will also include servicing the light to heavy duty city equipment. Applications for employment will be accepted until 3 p.m. Friday, June 22, 2012.

It was also decided that the city will be advertising 30 days for bids on the property at 301 Griswold. The city is hoping that either a modular home or a regular home gets built on the property. Initially the city will be placing a $15,000 special assessment to pay for the $20,000 that the city has invested on the site.

Approval was given by the Council to approve liquor license renewals for Tooties, Johnny Ringos, Old Tyme Saloon and TJ Liquor. All renewals are approved pending all the required paperwork is completed.

Librarian Dianne Sikkink-Swenson told the Council that it has been a busy summer at the Library with art shows and School Tours. The summer Reading Program begins June 14 and the theme will be “Dream Big Read.”

Chad Hindt informed the council that his department is busy with installing new bathrooms at the pool, and that new plants have been planted around the gazebo.

John Fenske said that the pool is now half full and will open next Tuesday. He applauded the work and cooperation he has received with Chad Hindt and he should be thanked for his efforts.

Music in the Park will be starting June 10 with a performance by Lost and Found. On the 17th Ridin High will be playing American roots, western, swing and blues. The ever popular Les Fields and the Turkey River All Stars will be in on the 24th. On July 1, the Pumper, the Peddler and the Politician with Tim Penny will be playing classic ‘60s. Bob Bovee and Gail Heil will be playing blues and authentic cowboy songs. Elvis is on deck on July 22. Dave Townsend Trio will be playing jazz on July 29 and August 12 the Jaggedease will be playing acoustic rock and blues. The programs are in the Spring Creek Park every Sunday from 5:00 to 7:00.

Administrator Deb Zimmer said that they are hopeful some money can be raised for new park equipment as a result of the Music in the Park.

Councilman Tony Archer had an item for discussion, that being the park/campground east of Spring Valley on CR 8. It is open for business and the rates have been set at $10 over night without electricity and $15 with. When visitors come to the campground they will need to drive downtown to be registered at City Hall. They will then receive a key to open the padlock for their site if they are using electricity. After hours the campers will need to call a deputy at the sheriff’s department to come to the campground to complete the necessary paperwork. Currently there is no sign at the site with those directions but one is apparently in the works.
