The Rockwell City Council scheduled Halloween Trick-or-Treating time at their regular meeting on Wednesday, October 3.

Costumed spooks and super heroes will be invited to go door-to-door for Halloween candy gathering from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Halloween Night, Wednesday, October 31. The council did consider scheduling a different night to avoid a conflict with local church events, but decided that previous Halloweens haven’t posed an issue.

In other business, the council received reports on the city pool, noting that repainting the entire interior will needed to be delayed as other expenses have come up. Instead, the pool will undergo spot fixes where most needed.

Pat Hurley was present to thank the council for taking responsibility for removing fallen trees and the expense of repairing fallen power lines after a tree on the city right-of-way fell during a recent storm. Hurley had previously submitted the repair bill to the council, who turned it in to the city’s insurance.

“You don’t know how much I greatly appreciate it,” said Hurley. Finally, the council discussed plans to expand the city’s industrial park. With the area at capacity, it has become time for the city to look at acquiring new land to support additional businesses.

“It’s kind of a nice problem to have that our industrial park is this full,” said Mayor Michael Flatness. “The problem is we need to be more proactive in getting that land bought.”
