City Begins DTR Grant Process

Mayor Ted Griess reminded the council and citizens attending the June 21 meeting that due to Independence Day falling on Sunday this year, the next regular Minden City Council meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 6. He also encouraged everyone to come out to the fireworks on Friday, July 2 for the fireworks show following the Legion baseball game.

Getting to business, the council heard from Joene Crocker of Miller & Associates about a Downtown Revitalization application. The grant opportunity has increased since the last time Minden applied for a DTR grant. The maximum request is now $400,000 but still requires a 25 percent local match. The project deadline has also been extended to allow for 30 months to complete the project after notice of award.
