CITY COUNCIL SETS ELECTION DATE AT MAY 7
|City Manager reports to City Council at last night's meeting.|
City Hall will be open for voting from 7am-7pm on May 2 and 3 during the regular early voting period. Early voting judges will be Belinda Ince and Donna Porter, and election judges on May 7 will be Jeannie McBurnett and Ann Teaff.
In his report to the Council, City Manager Cody Thompson said the City plans to put a new roof on the Community Center and is leaning toward using foam instead of steel as it will be cheaper and will insulate the Center better.
He also reported that work has begun on Young Farm Estates with the building of the forms for pouring the concrete slab at 112 Tom Dobbins Drive. Construction of another home at 113 James Wells Drive will begin next week.
Work at the old sanitary sewer plant will begin on March 13, when daylight savings times changes, and Roscoe’s annual Spring Clean-Up will be either March 21-26 or March 28-April 2.
Roscoe’s Spring Super Sunday will be on April 17 and will feature country music legend Robert Earl Keen.

WEATHER REPORT: WARMER WEATHER ON THE WAY
|"Nothing but blue skies do I see." The sky over the water tower this morning.|
However, the rest of this week and the beginning of next should be warmer. Today’s forecast is for a high of 77°, tomorrow 69°, and the rest of this week and the beginning of next in the low to mid-seventies. And, currently, the long-range forecast for the end of next week should see highs going into the eighties.
Unfortunately, there has not even been a hint of precipitation for over a month now and none is in the forecast.
