Minden Mayor Ted Griess opened the May 2 meeting of the Minden City Council with a message of thanks to everyone involved in resolving power outages and removing trees from power lines and roadways that resulted from the storm on April 29. He also expressed his appreciation to Nadine Fahrlander for donating a tree to be planted at Minden Cemetery for Arbor Day.
Moving to the business items on the agenda, the council considered the purchase of a Sharp MX-4071 copier/printer for City Hall from Eakes Office Plus. The current copier/printer at City Hall was purchased from Eakes Office Plus. It is six years old and breaks down monthly due to the volume of use it sees. The Police Department printer is constantly breaking down and needs replaced.
