Melrose Awarded $500,000 For New Health Clinic

Plans are now underway in eastern New Mexico for a brand new health clinic in the village of Melrose.

Mayor Lance Pyle tells NewsChannel 10 $500,000 dollars from a Community Development Block Grant was approved on Wednesday. Melrose applied for the money back in 2007 because they say residents must drive at least 30 miles for any type of medical care.

Plans are being drawn right now for the new building and Melrose will begin taking construction bids in the near future.
