The Rockmart Council once again took time out of their monthly meeting to honor one of their longest-serving employees.
Polk County is home to new Eagle Scouts in the form of Trace Barker, Donovan Scoggins, Brody Brown, and Zane Barker who received recognition during the Rockmart Council’s November meeting session.
The Rockmart Council had a light November meeting session, but with only a few items to cover, Mayor Miller had time to formally congratulate the city’s new and returning elected officials who are slated to begin terms at the beginning of 2020.
The Rockmart Council has been busy updating its ordinances, and with the approval of new regulations surrounding both loud noises and urban camping in city limits, Rockmart is looking to become a more peaceful place to live.
The City of Rockmart is now one of several communities around the state and country who have a Demand an End certification from an organization seeking to bring an end to all human trafficking.
The Rethink Rockmart group is meeting Thursday, July 25 to discuss neighborhood improvement and other ongoing projects, and those interested in stopping by can visit the community room of city hall beginning at 11:30 a.m.
Rockmart locals still have time to explore ‘A Universe of Stories’ with this year’s summer reading program, and as always, dozens of events have been lined up to keep the city’s astronauts entertained all season long.
Thanks to Bellview AME Church, citizens hoping to pick up a summer job or a new full-time position didn’t have to look far. The group sponsored their second job fair, and those in and around Polk County were invited to Rockmart City Hall for walk-in interviews and help with filling out applications.
