Public hearing on church May 17

A public hearing at Meeker Town Hall is scheduled for May 17 to discuss temporarily moving the century-old Methodist Church to the west end of Park Street until a permanent foundation in Ute Park can be built. A group wanting to save the historic church from demolition must move the church by July 1, 2011, and is asking the town board of trustees for support.
The group believes future uses of the church “are as varied as the imagination” and a permanent location in Ute Park would allow all people the chance to use this historic landmark in the setting of one of Meeker’s most unique town parks.
The group has received approximately $30,000 in pledges but will need to raise more to for the project. People in support of saving the Methodist Church are asked to attend the May 17 Meeker town board of trustees meeting. Pledges can be sent to P.O. Box LL, Meeker, Colo., 81641.
