St. Cloud Mayor Vetoes Street Vacation Move

Dave KleisST. CLOUD — St. Cloud’s mayor has used a little-known provision in the city’s charter to overturn a city council decision to vacate part of a city street.

Mayor Dave Kleis has vetoed a move to vacate a one-block section of Veterans’ Drive that is a dead-end near Hester Park.

Kleis says he made the decision after the neighborhood opposed.  He says they use that section of dead-end street for community events.

There are two rental properties along that block.  Kleis says the owners of the property applied to have the street vacated to increase the green space.

Kleis says it’s the first time a mayor has used the veto power since 1957.
