Meeker trustees approve 4-H sponsorship

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.

  1. Craig CO joined Moffat County by declaring they are a Second Amendment City. I wish Meeker had the Town Council had the balls to do the same with Rio Blanco County!! Probably a can of worms, but I like worms!!!!
