City goes after block grant funds

A large sewer project is one catalyst behind a resolution adopted Tuesday by the Minden City Council that will procure Louisiana Community Development Block Grant funds.

"It's important for us to apply ahead of time for this grant money to ensure we get what we need when we need it," said Minden Mayor Bill Robertson. "There are other projects that will need funding, too, but the sewer program is probably the largest."

With all members present, the council voted unanimously on the following agenda items:

Request by Laura and Greg Stanley for a front yard setback variance at 211 Margaret Place, as approved by the Minden Regional Planning Commission;

Request to appoint a curator to represent a property owner at 203 Cox Lane for property scheduled to be condemned;

Resolution to declare certain City of Minden property as surplus and fix the terms of sale; and,

The monthly police report.
