Council Approves Notice To Proceed With Condemnation

Mayor Ted Griess offered congratulations and thanks to the newest member of the Minden Volunteer Fire Department, Doug Maloley, during the November 2 regular Minden City Council meeting. He also reminded the pubic that the annual Light of the World pageant has been canceled, but the narration will be played on November 28 and December 6 and 13 on the square. Anyone who chooses to attend should park on the square and listen from their vehicle. The downtown Christmas lights will be turned on at the end of the audio broadcast.

Brent and Shawna Lockhorn own two adjoining parcels that are currently divided evenly. They submitted an application for minor subdivision of the properties to make the north parcel bigger and the south parcel smaller. Brent attended the meeting and explained he would like to build a shop closer to the lot line than is allowed. Rather than pursuing a variance for the build they applied for a subdivision. The minor subdivision for Lots 7,8,9,10,11,12, Block 22, McCool’s Addition to the City of Minden was approved.
