MEEKER | The meeting of the Meeker Board of Trustees started with the public participation portion of the approved agenda. Three Rio Blanco County 4-H students (Dawson Willey, Deana and Leah Wood) requested that the Town of Meeker sponsor the 2019 Bred-N-Fed and Carcass Evaluation contests. The board approved a sponsorship of $500. The sponsorship will be used for the purchase of quality custom belt buckles, usable tools and equipment, and scholarship prizes. The contest hopes to encourage 4-H contestants to provide the highest quality product they possibly can.
The Rio Blanco County Historical Society was also on the agenda, represented by Bob Amick. The historical society requested a donation of $2,000 for signage in the Meeker Historic District. The signage would include the purchase and placement of marker plaques designating a structure as an historical building. After some discussion, the board awarded $1,500.
Bids for the water tank drain line project were opened and discussed. The disposition of the bidding is ongoing and a decision on how to proceed will be made at the next meeting.
After a brief period of discussion regarding the Town Manager’s report, the board went into executive session and the public portion of the meeting was adjourned.
