SLATER RESIDENTS ASK COUNCIL TO USE CITY BUILDING FOR RURAL FREEDOM CLASSES

Three women were at the meeting of the Slater City Council on Tuesday, September 17, asking the council for use of a city building for some classes involving a program to help out area residents in need.

According to Paula Harris, the program is for those who are struggling to overcome life-controlling issues.

Harris says they are looking for something that can give the program participants a bit better location than currently is being used.

Harris said it is nondenominational. The class is not geared toward any specific religious belief.

According to a flyer presented, the program is free, but there is a $12.50 charge for a book that is used. The program is presented by trained facilitators. For more information on the program, call (660) 529-9960 or (660) 631-2290.

The council discussed the request in executive session after the regular meeting. Information from that portion of the meeting is not available at this time.
