City Council Adopts Resolution Obligating American Rescue Plan Funds 

The Minden City Council tackled a full agenda during the September 6 regular meeting. First up was a letter of agreement amendment #1 with Olsson Associates for Minden West Estates Phase II for construction phase services not to exceed $279,200. 

The council was told the estimate is on the heavy side in anticipation of a worst case scenario. As part of the agreement, the same individual who oversaw the last project will oversee MWE Phase II construction to ensure work is done to standard. The letter of agreement #1 with Olsson Associates for MWE Phase II for construction phase services not to exceed $279,200 was approved. 

Mike and Lori Conyers have been watering the flowers on the downtown square daily since June 2. Because of the dry summer, the couple has spent more hours tending to the downtown beautification than expected. City Administrator Matt Cederburg suggested the council adjust the payment to a more fair amount for the extra work.
