The public tap in downtown Minden was closed on Monday afternoon, until Tuesday morning.

The tap, located at the Old Fire Hall, was put out of commission while staff were diagnosing the problem.

In a note from the township on facebook, there is a reminder that coin-shaped metal, like washers and sheet metal, will not work in the machine.

Staff were able to remove the object obstructing the coin slot, and the public water tap is now operating normally.
