How to fund the approved Rockwood firetruck is just one of many issues the city will be considering when tackling the budget for the coming year.
Rockwood City Council approved the lowest bid at a special-called meeting earlier this year.
“I think this is a great deal if we can manage to pay it off. We need it,” said Vice Mayor Peggy Evans. She and others, however, worry where money for big ticket items will come from.
Rockwood has heard month after month how it is spending most of the revenue coming in, and the fire truck is just one of a laundry list of needed items.
The city council will be meeting in special-called meeting 4 p.m. Thursday to discuss items including hiring a police officer and soliciting bids for health insurance.
