Residents Confront City Council About Water Quality Issues During July 18 Meeting 

A public hearing for the application submitted by the Community Redevelopment Authority of the City of Minden for the final plat for Minden West Estates Phase 2 was opened during the July 18 regular meeting of the Minden City Council. 

Jeff Palik from Olsson Associates reviewed the proposed plat that includes 35 buildable lots. Half of the pond for the stormwater drainage plan is also included in the plat. The other half is on private land and will require an easement. 

Residents Ron Keen and Guy Nelson spoke against the plat. Keen explained he isn’t so much against the final plat as he believes the City should spend its money on addressing water problems and fixing existing infrastructure before spending money on expansion projects.
