Improvements in Progress at City Park

City workers near completion on third new pavilion at City Park.

At the City Council meeting on February 10, the Mayor and Council Members unanimously approved further improvements at the City Park, and in the past week considerable changes have been evident there.  Workers have erected two new pavilions and are nearing completion on a third.  These pavilions will provide a roof and shade for the new picnic tables beneath them, making for a more attractive park and a pleasant experience for the picnickers who use them.    

The City Council also approved improvements to the little city park across from the Roscoe State Bank downtown as well as replacing the fence at George Parks Field.  Three new live oak trees will also be planted downtown.   



Funeral services are pending at McCoy Funeral Home for Jimmy Lynn Buckner, 60, who died Sunday at Nolan Nursing and Rehab in Sweetwater.  Jimmy Lynn grew up in Roscoe and was a member of the class of 1969 at Roscoe High.   



Qualified citizens desiring to run for Mayor, City Council, or membership on the RISD School Board have until Monday, March 14, to file an application. Both City and School elections will be on May 14, and early voting will be from May 2 to May 10.
