News & Notes from November 13th Twin Valley City Council
By Mark Askelson (11/14/17)
Twin Valley, MN -- The Twin Valley City Council held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night. The council spent the better part of a half hour debating a request to lower or eliminate special tax assessments on property that was purchased via tax forfeiture. Twin Valley Mayor Ben Fall explains the situation and their decision.
Fall says there may be several other homes or properties with similar situations moving forward.
Public Works reported that the one of the pumps at the lift station has broken down recently. But because of the age of the pumps, the city council was forced to purchase and install a brand new system at pretty hefty cost.
On a brighter note, the city put in an order for some new Christmas decorations thanks to a grant from Shock and Awe.
The Twin Valley City Council also approved a $50 per month increase to the Weimer Cabin rent, approved a $20 fee for recreation vehicle permits, and set a special budget work session meeting for December 4th.
