Spring Valley to charge interest on some overdue bills
By Sari Gordon
SPRING VALLEY—Overdue bills received action from the Spring Valley Village Board Wednesday.
In other business:
The Tri-County Cruisers requested McKay Avenue from Akers Street to First Street be closed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The board approved that request and another to allow for open containers during that time for the Cruisers’ car show.
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) report card for the water treatment facility included an "F" for ammonia. The board heard this is common in winter months.
"It's pretty typical during the winter time when it's so cold," members were told.
The board confirmed they reviewed the report and will work with the DNR to fix the problem.
Cedar Corporation, village engineering firm from Menomonie, is charging a $5,500 engineering fee to produce a bid for the asbestos abatement project for the vacated nursing home, it was learned. This environmental project expense is no different from a typical street project, it was said. The fee also covers project management including compliance oversight.
The board approved keeping dogs for 48 hours and charging owners $25 for housing and vaccinations. This is a one-time fee in addition to the cost of a license and/or fine for lack of a license.
