Meeker Co. receives early Christmas present in form of grant money


LITCHFIELD -- Meeker County got an early visit from Santa Claus.

Highway Engineer Ron Mortensen on Tuesday told the county commissioners the county will receive $291,000 from an additional federal grant for a two-year project to grade and overlay a 2.8-mile section of Highway 27 near Kingston.

The county originally was approved to receive $1,090,000 in federal highway funds for the $1,775,000 project, slated to begin in the spring.
