Possible Council Merger – Trails West and Okaw Valley Councils

While not from New York State, I thought I’d pass along a potential merger of two Illinois Councils currently under discussion.

A committee of the Wood River-based Trails West Council of the Boy Scouts of America will meet Wednesday in Edwardsville to discuss the possible merger with the Belleville-based Okaw Valley Council.

Apparently the meeting is tonight:

During the meeting, to be held Wednesday evening, the committee will share its findings with the Trails West Council Board and there is a possibility of a vote. If the council board votes to proceed, another meeting will be held after a 60-day period and the Trails West full membership will vote on the merger.

Hat Tip: Scouting News.
