MINDEN — One Minden family may finally get relief from the high-pitched sound of a nearby emergency siren.
Members of the Minden City Council voted 3-1 during their regular meeting Monday to spend up to $10,000 to move the siren as soon as possible to a more ideal location.
Michele Malcom, who lives at the property at 219 Aspen Ave., with her family, attended Monday's meeting with her husband, Ryan. She said they would not have built their house there if not for assurances from public officials that the siren would move.
"We would never have agreed to build next to a siren," she stated in a letter. "But we were told the siren would get moved so we trusted city officials that it would get done. We are standing now 2 1/2 years later with the siren still in place."
