Pro-Central at public hearing

0/00/00 (Sat)

Polite applause followed nearly every person who stood up to speak at the public time zone hearing held Friday in Hazen. That applause, however, was just a little more spirited for those who spoke in favor of changing Mercer County from Mountain time to Central time.

In a fairly mellow manner, about 80 Mercer County residents gathered Friday evening at Hazen City Hall to talk about time. The hearing, conducted by U.S. Department of Transportation legal counsel Robert Ashby, was held to gather public comment on the question of whether or not to move Mercer County from Mountain to Central time.
