The results of a work session Tuesday with the county commissioners, county attorney Todd Starr and public health director Alice Harvey to determine the county’s process for summer event planning were released Thursday.

According to the county’s website, “The commissioners maintain the message that they have no control or authority over county events other than in the use of county-owned facilities or resources.”

Community events that do utilize county resources—staff, facilities, funding, etc.—will need to submit an event plan for review.

Events that use town resources in Meeker or Rangely can submit the same form for review by public health before the form is sent to the town. Each town will follow individual protocols.

The county’s public health department is available for consultations and recommendations related to hosting events.

Event plans for the Meeker Summer Rodeo Series, Range Call, and the Rangely Hill Climb are on the commissioners’ May 26 meeting agenda.
