Twin Valley, MN -- The Twin Valley City Council held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night at the Twin Valley Community Center. At the meeting, the council opened bids for the solar panel project that will help power the Water Treatment facility. The council accepted the low bid of $120,000 and now Twin Valley Mayor Ben Fall says they’ll work on figuring out the funding for the project.

The Twin Valley Garden Club recently constructed a Gazebo along Highway 32 and at this week’s meeting the council approved a request to help pay for the concrete, according to Mayor Fall.

Continuing on from discussions in previous meetings, the Valley Pines made a request for the city to help with snow removal on their property, something that was previously done by the former Nursing Home. Fall says because of liability concerns and lack of manpower, it’s just not something they’ll be able to do.

And during the public forum portion of the meeting, Mayor Fall says they chatted with a couple of concerned citizens about speeding vehicles in the northeastern corner of the city.
