No more new faces in Spring Valley

SPRING VALLEY – Spring Valley Mayor Walt Marini appointed several public officials at Monday’s meeting, but there haven’t been any changes.

After the April 29 meeting, which saw the replacement of the city attorney and city engineer, this week the council approved current Spring Valley Police Chief Kevin Sangston to maintain his position, as well as John Schultz as superintendent of public works and Tim Samolinski as building inspector. Alderman Mike Herrmann was named the chair of the Finance Committee; Mark Actis was named chair of Public Utilities Committee; and Dave Pellegrini was named the chair of Ways and Means.

Alderman Dan McFadden will continue as chair of the Legislative Committee as well as Tom Nesti as Water and Sewer Committee chair; Chuck Hansen as Streets and Alleys chair, Jim Taliano as Health and Safety chair and Jack Narczewski as Auditing Committee chair.

The council also approved the appointments to the various city boards and committees.

In other business, the council:

• Adopted an ordinance allowing for the issuance of general obligation bonds to purchase a fire truck for the fire department. The city will draw up an ordinance allowing Sangston permission to sell a 2002 Chevy Blazer that has not been used for several months due to mechanical and mileage issues.

• Voted to go out for bids to construct an access road for the west interceptor sewer project.

• Heard Mayor Walt Marini met with representatives from Sullivan’s grocery store. There is a water line on the property, that if moved, would allow for two more lots for commercial development.
