The Rockwell City Council met in regular session on Wednesday, April 3, 2019, at 7:00 pm, in the council chambers of city hall.

After the call to order and approval of minutes of the previous meeting, Mayor Mike Flatness read a proclamation, making West Fork High School student Breea Weaver Mayor For A Day. Breea won the award with her essay on “What I Would Do If I Were Mayor,” which she read to the council. In it, she expressed a desire to start a “Walking School Bus” program, as exists in other communities, to walk students home from school, and to repair the potholes in the streets, particularly in front of the school.

The council also discussed street repair, learning from city staff in attendance that ‘frost boil’ pothole repairs can’t be made yet, as the ground is still frozen deep under city streets, and the holes would simply return. City staff is monitoring and will effect repairs at the earliest opportunity.
