According to city staff, the water department in Rhome does more than check meters and fix leaks.

They also take on general maintenance tasks and oversee the water tower.

For that, the council will hold a public hearing then consider amending the budget to appropriate money from the general fund to the water/sewer budget for maintenance reimbursement and the water tower lease.

Another public hearing will be held to discuss carport regulations.

Current ordinance only regulates the structures in “Old Town.”

City officials will also hear a financial review on the city’s volunteer fire department and will discuss a pair of holiday celebrations – the Memorial Day program and the Pioneer Days heritage festival.

The council will also consider:

  • adding restroom facilities and an information center at the Family Park;
  • addressing speeding on Randall Street; and
  • enlisting a warrant collection service.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. and will be held at City Hall, 105 First St. It is open to the public.
