Spring Valley looks at cooperative insurance

SPRING VALLEY — The city of Spring Valley is waiting on cost estimates for a cooperative insurance agreement with other municipalities.

Mayor Walt Marini said at this week’s council meeting he is also looking for a quote to keep the existing insurance policy.

“Just so we can compare the costs,” Marini said.

In other business, the council:

• Learned the first phase of the IKE grant work at the waste water treatment plant is complete, and the second phase which includes tree removal is beginning.

• Approved a Spring Valley Business Revitalization TIF grant for Spring Valley Mini Mart and Edward Jones.

• Approved rezoning the Bassick property from M-1 limited manufacturing to B-4 General Commercial. The zoning had already been approved by the planning commission.
