Work on South Broadway in Spring Valley is underway

The Spring Valley City Council met in regular session on June 11, 2012, and approved the first pay request to Elcor Construction Company of Rochester. $212,313.60 was approved for the South Broadway construction project. As the work proceeds this summer there will be additional pay requests until the work is finalized. This will be part of the 2012 Street Improvement Project.

Work is also going to be done on Main St. from south Section to Highway 16. It is a County Road but the city will be getting bids dealing with storm sewers which will be a “little costly” as Administrator Deb Zimmer said. To determine the level of work on the City’s part the council approved spending $1,000 to do a feasibility study which will look at all of the projected improvement.

Mike Bubany appeared before the Council and presented results of the 2012 bond sale. He said that the sale of the bonds had been opened that day and the successful bidder was Robert W. Baird & Company from Milwaukee. The purchase price of the bonds is $1,763,207.85 and the net interest cost will be $219,735.90 at 2.0318 percent.

Council delayed action on a request from Tooties restaurant and bar to serve liquor on Sunday. The license fee is $1,500 per year and the Sunday sales is $200, but there is a requirement in the ordinance that 75 percent of sales need to be food sales. The Council can ask to see the requirements from the restaurant to determine if that criteria is met. Council did not set a date for taking up the issue again.

Approval was given for the Chamber Ag Days for the street dance, fireworks, parade, temporary liquor license and street closures. The Valley Christian Center also received approval for their fireworks display on July 3, 2012.

Formal approval was given for placement a special assessment on Center Avenue for work completed. The special assessment amount is $15,000.00.

Administrator Deb Zimmer said that the proposed Rental Ordinance will be on the agenda for June 25 and she does expect a large crowd. The time of that meeting will be 5:30.
