The town of Meeker, Colorado has issued a Request for Proposals for upgrade work to its busy animal shelter.
Located at 109 Third Street, just to the south of the town’s main E. Market Street thoroughfare, the shelter regularly processes an estimated 130 animals a year, and has for some time been in need of some facility upgrading.
That work will include both the remodeling of parts of the interior of the shelter as well as improvements to its exterior.
The interior improvements will entail the repairing of walls, installation of acoustic ceiling tiles, floor drainage repairs, a lobby heating system installation, and both additional electrical outlets and new lighting throughout the facility.
The construction of a new bathroom for the shelter will also be a part of the upgrading.
Exterior work will take on the removal and replacement of windows, new stucco walls, and the installation of ribbed metal roof panels.
With a population of around 2,200 people, Meeker is an agricultural community and summer tourist destination spot.
The RFP has a submission deadline of August 18.
