From Your City

Temporary Trash Pick-up Delay

We just received word that Eldorado is open and our trash trailer can be hauled. The city will resume trash collections for business today (15 August) and finish our regular city route for residents tomorrow (16 August).

While the rain is indeed a blessed event, the amount of rain we have had does pose difficulties for the transfer station and getting our trailer to Eldorado to dump the trash. We are unable to complete our trash route or accept larger loads at the transfer station this week. We are aware of the inconvenience this causes to all our residents and we appreciate your patience.

A Note about Trash

If you have not received a copy of the receptacle ordinance, please come by City Hall and pick up a copy. We have both English and Spanish versions available. Our City workers have been informed to follow the ordinance when picking up trash, and we appreciate your help.

Did you know??...

Water leaks can cause damage to your home, unwanted organic growth and a higher than average water bill. Unfortunately, because one cannot see most of your pipework in your home and property, you may not always know that leak has formed.

One of the most common leaks is a toilet leak. Did you know that leaving a toilet "running" can actually use many hundreds of gallons over a period of time?

Rust and other forms of corrosion may eat away at the pipe if you have an older plumbing system.

Where pipes connect often represents the weakest point in a line and over time pipe joints can deteriorate causing leaks.

Tree roots can intrude on water lines causing a leak and lending to moisture that seeps out into your yard.

Rapid temperature changes, such as we have in Rocksprings, can also contribute to leaks. Temperature changes can force the pipes to expand and contract, and that expansion may cause pipes to crack.

Extra water usage associated with summertime such as extra watering of your yard and filling up swimming pools can also contribute to a higher water bill.

The presence of these circumstances listed above often indicated a high risk of leaks. So if you have noticed an increase in your water bill, please check to make sure that none of these circumstances exist.

Mayor and City Council

City Council – Just what is a City Council and what do they do?

A city council is a form of government that is used in many towns and cities around the world. The members of the council are elected by the citizens, and they work together to pass laws, make general policies, supervise city government, and appropriate funds for various needs. They are elected every two years.

Collectively, your Rocksprings City Council empowers the democratic process by local decision-making and action by, and on behalf of our community. They are your voice for a better community. Meetings are held the second Monday of every month at City Hall, 100 Austin Street, (unless otherwise noted). Meetings commence at 6:00pm. We invite you to participate in local government.
