Chamber hosts special district meeting

MEEKER I The Meeker Chamber of Commerce will be holding a special presentation on Wednesday titled “Investing in our Community,” which will feature many of the area special government districts explaining what they do and where they are headed this year.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on March 16 at the Freeman E. Fairfield Center at 200 W. Main in Meeker. The public is invited.

“The Meeker Chamber of Commerce is excited about the many great activities and investments happening around our community, and we would like to help share this information with our citizens and businesses,” chamber executive director Stephanie Kobald said.
Special districts fill a vital role in providing many of the basic services and public needs of the people, including fire and rescue services, water and wastewater treatment and delivery, parks and recreation amenities, hospitals, libraries and cemeteries.
“We are hosting a community meeting where a representative from each special district will present a brief update on their organization,” Kobald said.
Those districts scheduled to take part include: the ERBM Recreation and Park District, Meeker Regional Library District, Meeker Sanitation, Pioneers Medical Center, Re-1 School District, the Rio Blanco County Commissioners, Rio Blanco Fire Department, the Town of Meeker, the White River Conservation District and Yellow Jacket Water Conservancy.
There will also be a question and answer period included.
