City Takes Action On Parking Near High School

At the beginning of the April 19 Minden City Council meeting, Mayor Ted Griess had two mayoral announcements to share. First he encouraged residents to take advantage of the annual City/County Cleanup Day taking place May 7-8. He also announced the Minden Volunteer Fire Department will hold its annual pancake feed on the morning of May 8.

Getting down to business, the council was asked to consider Ordinance 1252 amending Section 82-99(o), No Parking Area designated on Gilman Avenue to the Minden Municipal Code. The current code states there will be no parking on the west side of Gilman Avenue between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on school days. The designation was made for the safety of students and patrons because the sidewalk on that side of the street was too narrow to use. The amendment switches the no parking designation to the east side of the street.
