Posted in Spring Valley Government

The Spring Valley City Council meeting got underway at 6:00 on Monday night, and six minutes later the meeting was over. The agenda consisted of approval of the minutes from October 8, Consider the October Final Accounts Payables totaling $365,080.56 and to approve a short-term extension agreement with Waste Management.

Gary Heinzig of Waste Management said that he had talked with their billing department and changed the extension date so the new agreement will begin February 1, 2013. He said that bills are going out now for service in November, December and January, so the clean break would be to make the changes effective February 1st. Heinzig continued to state that they will still contact the commercial customers and let them know that their new rates will begin November 1. They will also have best-case pricing. If their current rate is lower than their new rates, that will be honored through the life of the current contract before switching to the new rate. The Recycle Agreement was mutually agreed to between the contractor and the city, the current end date is October 31 and that will be extended to January 31, 2013.

In other business Tim Rasmussen, Deputy Sheriff and Spring Valley Policy Coordinator appeared before the Council and provided them with a log of calls for service and Patrol Activity. During the month of September officers handled 59 calls, most of which were the usual barking dog complaints and dealing with driving complaints. But there were other calls that involve issues that places these officers in difficult positions and sometimes in dangerous positions. Every one of these officers deserve a big “Thank You.”

Chad Hindt of the street department reported that workers have started rocking the trail and continue to sweep the streets and put up signs on Broadway.

Jim Cooper said that it’s been a busy month for the ambulance service with 39 calls during the month.
