Spring Valley City Council Report: Schedule set for Hudson Street improvements

Fri, Feb 15th, 2008
Posted in Government

A very well attended informational meeting for citizens about the Hudson Street Improvement Plans preceded the regular Spring Valley City Council meeting on February 11. Bryan Holtz with Yaggy Colby and Associates answered questions and individual citizen concerns at the meeting.

In conjunction with the street improvement meeting the city council at their meeting discussed the order of events including the awarding of the contract for the work. Holtz advised council members that it would be preferable to set the assessments prior to awarding the construction contract to the lowest bidder. He expected that the low bid could be recognized at the March 24 meeting. Then sometime in April the Public Hearing could be held and that same night the assessments could be set. Mayor Jim Struzyk suggested that it was best to wait the thirty day period during which assessments could be contested before awarding the contract. Holtz noted that the delay would likely insure that the work would take two construction seasons. The council approved a motion to have the Public Hearing before awarding the contract.
