SPRING VALLEY - At the regular Nov. 13 meeting, the Spring Valley City Council gave the go ahead to Yaggy Colby Associates for the final design and construction services for the 2008 CIP project which includes storm water and sanitary for Hudson Avenue, Courtland Street, and Jefferson Street improvements. The project consists of reconstruction of Hudson Avenue from Grant Street to Freemont Street, Courtland Street from Washington Avenue to Huron Avenue, and Jefferson Street from Washington Avenue to Hudson Avenue. The price tag on the final design services portion will not exceed $123,000. The estimated cost of the construction services portion of the project is estimated to be $110,000. Preliminary information is expected to be in the hands of the council this winter. It is anticipated that the project can go out for bids in March.

The City Council questioned Bryan Holtz of Yaggy Colby in regard to the current project for storm sewer and sanitary sewer from Farmer to Tracey Road. The council wanted to know why Road Constructors, Inc. has not finished sodding the second and third phases of the project. Holtz said that repeated calls to Road Constructors, Inc. have gone unanswered and the work goes unfinished. The sod was to have been in place in September and the council is not pleased. Homeowners who's property is still torn up are being encouraged to call Buzz at Road Constructors, 285-1211 to voice their displeasure. Approval was given to pay Road Constructors $215,755.28 for work done. There is still a retainer of $35,831.39.

Approval was also given to Lloyd D. Johnson to do the City's audit for the next year. The fee is $11,950.00 which represents a 3% increase over the 2006 audit fee.

During the visitor's section, Mary Whalen presented the council with a number of documents relating to her employment status. According to the documents, Whalen had been suspended from the Ambulance Service because of a formal complaint from Director Jim Cooper that she had "breached HIPAA". After reading the five page document, Whalen resigned from the Ambulance Service effective November 13. The council accepted the document without comment.
