Written by Daniel Davidson on April 2, 2020
The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Minden City Council will be held this coming Monday, April 6, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. Due to restrictions put in place by the Governor, which limits gatherings to less than 10, members of the public will not be allowed in. The meeting will be streamed on YouTube, and will be carried on AM 1240 KASO, which is also streamed online at KBEF.com.
Due to the resignation of District A Councilman Herbert “Tye” Taylor III, the mayor will make his recommendation to the council to replace him with an interim councilman or councilwoman until a special election, which will be held on November 3, 2020 (Primary Election) and December 5, 2020 (General Election). By law, the council has 20 days from the date of vacancy to appoint a council representative. Also due to the resignation of Taylor, a new Mayor Pro-Tempore will need to be voted on by the council.
Also on the agenda are items to terminate the current city attorney, Charles Minifield (Item D), and appoint a new city attorney (Item E). Items are also on the agenda to hire a new police officer and a new firefighter.
Due to the resignation of City Clerk Michael Fluhr, which was effective March 31, 2020, the signatory power will need to be changed. The current Mayor Pro-Tempore will be added to the list of people that are allowed to sign checks for the city. Others on the list will be the mayor, and the assistant city clerk.
Other standard items on the agenda are adopting minutes, February budget/financial report, and police report for February.
