No action to be taken on utility bills at city council meeting

by Minden Press-Herald

No action will be taken regarding the City of Minden utilities at the November council meeting, according to the agenda.

Minden Mayor Tommy Davis said no solution has been found regarding the power purchase agreement with SWEPCO, although the city is still pursuing all options available.

Although no action will be taken, the public will still be allowed to voice their concerns at the end of the meeting.

“We want the public to feel as though they have a voice, because they do,” Davis said. “There will be an opportunity for comments at the end of the meeting and that would be an appropriate time to bring up concerns.”

Davis suggested concerns involving individual billing be directed through the light and water department during business hours.

“We won’t be able to address billing questions at the council meeting, but we do want customers to know their issue will be addressed when they contact the utility department,” he said.

Those presenting their concerns to the council should also be mindful of time.

“It’s not that we don’t want to hear what people have to say, we do,” he said. “But we have to be respectful of time and give everyone who wants to speak a chance to do so.”

A public hearing will be held at 7 p.m., before the regular council meeting begins.

The hearing will review the adoption of ordinances levying sales taxes of up to 2 percent and hotel occupancy taxes of up to 2 percent in Minden’s Tax Incentive Funding Districts at 7 p.m.

The Minden City Council meets in council chambers at city hall.
