City Employees Recognized for Service
Sharon Hueftle from South Central Economic Devel- opment District spoke to the Minden City Council again about the Nebraska Affordable Housing Trust Fund Grant during the March 6 regular meeting. This time the focus was for renovations of the buildings located at the southeast corner of 4th Street and Colorado Avenue.
Hueftle began by informing the council the City can submit multiple applications for the trust fund grant. If the council approves submitting an application for these properties, SCEDD will push hard for the project to be considered a conversion rather than rehab in or- der to maximize potential funding. The hope is to create second story apartments in the buildings.
Like the old bank building renovation, this would be a three year project with a maximum of $750,000 to potentially be awarded as a no match, reimbursement based grant. If the grant is awarded, the developers would pay for the work and present proof to the City to disburse funds to be reimbursed by the State. The affect on the City budget would likely take place in the 23-24 fiscal year.
The council approved a motion to allow SCEDD to submit a pre-application for the Nebraska Affordable Housing Trust Fund Grant for the buildings located at the southeast corner of 4th Street and Colorado Avenue.
Mayor Larry Evans recognized five City employees for their years of service: Paul Mosley 15 years, Tony Dorn 16 years, John Hlavinka 17 years, Chris Klahn 20 years, and Alan Eschliman 25 years. Evans told the coun- cil and public he hopes to continue recognitions in years to come to show appreciation of the time and dedica- tion of the City’s employees.
