The Spring Valley City Council met on Monday night and acted on several important issues.

The 2014 Budget was reviewed and adopted. The total for the 2014 Budget was $914,632, which is what the budget was in 2013. The tax levy for 2014 has a couple of line items that were adjusted, but the total remained the same as last this year. The General Fund Levy will be $326,924, EDA is $25,000, Parks $120,000, Library $109,736 and Debt is $332,972.

Under the 2014 Capital Expenditures there were several items acted on. $115,000 was approved for the snowblower for the Street Department.

The Main Street/County 1 Improvement amounts to a $130,000 Transfer from the General Fund. $511,000 will go toward the Industrial Park Expansion. This will be a Transfer from the General Fund from the Rochester sales tax money.

There will be expenditures for Park Improvements. $65,000 will go to new Playground Equipment and Grant Street Park. There will also be new bathrooms at southpark totaling $50,000. City Administrator Deb Zimmer said that STS will be doing much of the work on the bathrooms.

For the pool $4,000 for a concrete slab by the baby pool.

Final approval of the 2014 Ambulance Budget will be held off until the audit is done for next year. Currently, $25,000 is budgeted for the 2014 Budget, but the Ambulance Budget shows a deficit of $15,750. Under consideration is a power lift for the ambulance.

The Sewer Fund set aside $15,000 to camera and jetting of the lines.

An additional bit of information said; “The operating budget for the Parks is very tight which is the reason the improvements are coming from other funds.” It continued by stating that the Library Fund is budgeted for a deficit of $11,203.

A resolution was passed that set the fire department pay. The fire chief will be paid $1,200 per year. The first assistant chief $750 per year, the second assistant chief $450 and the Secretary $450.00. $10 per hour will be paid for fire/rescue calls and drills and meetings.
