Twin Valley, MN -- The Twin Valley City Council held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night. At the meeting the council heard from Ulteig Engineering, who presented bids for the Water Treatment Rehabilitation project. The bids came in a little higher than expected due to project add ons, but Twin Valley Mayor Ben Fall says they ultimately chose the low bid.

The city will be responsible for 20% of the total project costs.

Last week the council approved a $74,500 investment in the recently purchased Twin Valley Assisted Living. At this weeks meeting, the council had discussion on where that money would come from.

During the public input portion of the meeting, the council heard from the owner of the vacant Classic Diner building. Mayor Fall says he’s exploring options on what to do with the building as it has sat vacant for several years.

And Norman County East Superintendent Rob Nudell visited with the council about a potential partnership with the city with their building trades class. Mayor Fall says they’re going to look into more at future meetings, but in the meantime the school needs to presale a home as soon as possible in order to build one this school year.
