SPRING VALLEY — The Spring Valley City Council approved a $5,000 facade grant at Monday’s meeting to a business owner looking to update his building front.

Bill Elliott of Elliott’s Last Pour will put the funds toward a $12,500 stone front to his establishment on South Spalding Street.

The council also approved the application of a resident on Third Street to install a concrete driveway with new approach that would require a curb cutout. Aldermen approved the request on the condition that the work is overseen by the city to ensure it is done properly.

The legislative committee advised that they have been in communication with Spring Valley Police Chief Kevin Sangston regarding cannabis legislation. Sangston advised the committee to review legislation set by the state before introducing ordinances regarding cannabis usage within the city.

Residents are advised to keep leaves in berms and not roadways as city leaf cleanup continues.
