Twin Valley, MN — The Twin Valley City Council discussed water and wages at their regular monthly meeting on Monday night, November 9th. The meeting began with a public hearing on the city’s Wellhead Protection Plan. The report, which is mandated by the state, showed that the city’s drinking water supply is at low risk of contamination, according to Twin Valley Mayor Ben Fall.

The city council also approved a final pay request for the water treatment plan renovation. Mayor Fall says the project came in slightly under budget and citizens should have been noticing an improvement in their drinking water in recent weeks.

And with the city looking to finalize the 2021 budget next month, the council began looking into a new system for setting wages. Mayor Fall says the personnel committee is recommending a more uniformed approach with set pay scales and yearly increases.

The Twin Valley City Council also approved a 5-year Audit agreement with Hoffman, Phillip, and Knutson. The council has a special council meeting scheduled for this Friday to canvass the election results and special budget session is scheduled for December 7th.
