Rhome City Council to discuss pavilion, VFD limit

By Messenger Staff | Published Wednesday, February 12, 2014

It’s “old business” on the agenda, but the Rhome City Council will continue discussions on the city’s pavilion and volunteer fire dept. when it meets Thursday.

The ordinance limiting membership on the volunteer fire dept. to no more than two city council members has been the focus of controversy in recent meetings. The measure also requires those members to recuse themselves anytime the council votes on RVFD issue.

The council will set a date to move Rescue Revenue to City Hall, and consider draft ordinances on PODS and carports.

Among the new business on Thursday’s agenda are contracts with the Wise County Elections Office and Northwest Independent School District for the May 10 council elections to be held jointly.

Another contract will finance equipment for the public works department.

The council will also order a plaque to recognize major donors for Veterans’ Park, review incentive pay and the city’s depreciation schedule, and set dates for an Easter Egg Hunt, the candidate forum and chili cookoff.

One Response to “Rhome City Council to discuss pavilion, VFD limit”

  1. The plaque of donors has sat there for years and they do not have all the donors names. Since Rhome City Hall squashed Veterans Day 2013 they show pics of 2012. Ask them about 2011. Also ask the former park board members of Charles Pennington, Ronnie Moore and Deborah Becraft reasons why and why Desert Storm is not in park anywhere. Ask why eternal flame doesn’t function even after the present park board got it repaired and was down there greeting veterans after city Secretary put on website that there was to be no veterans day 2013.
