When Rockwood Street Department spent less than planned in last fiscal year’s budget, officials  quickly put it to use.
Sidewalks have been replaced in areas along Gateway Avenue, and other paving projects were done.
“Totally, we did around $40,000 worth of repairs out of funds he had left,” said Rockwood City Recorder Becky Ruppe.
She said Hugh O’Dell, street department head, was able to do the work because he managed his budget well.
Portions of Plemmons Road, the Truck Route, Tedder, East Dunn and Tate streets were repaired from the money the street department saved over the year.
