With warmer temperatures came talk of street improvements as Drew Weber, of Bolton and Menk, gave the Spring Valley City Council an update on the upcoming Farmer Street project, a joint project with Fillmore County, during their February 13 meeting.
“This morning at 10 a.m., bidding opened for the Farmer Street project. We received four bids,” Weber shared. The lowest bid came from Ulland Bros. at $2,049,101.29, which would put the city’s portion of the project between $1.4 and $1.5 million, according to Weber.
The council moved to approve a resolution declaring costs to be assessed and ordered the preparation of the assessments. They next approved a resolution calling for a hearing on those assessments for the street project. The assessment hearing will be held on Monday, March 13 at 6 p.m. It was recommended the council approve Ulland Bros. bid after the assessment hearing.
