The Minden City Council drew close to a final balanced budget for the 2018-19 fiscal year Tuesday morning after starting in May with a $5 million shortfall. Yesterday, Mayor Tommy Davis provided additional information for a few of the items discussed.
One such item was road work. Davis said next year the $500,000 allocated for road overlays will be funded differently.
“On everyone’s utility bill now there is already a $3 infrastructure fee,” he said. “We’re taking basically a year’s worth of that, $240,000, to put into the road work.”
Davis said the priority project for those funds is located on Longleaf Drive
