People who are sent to Rockwood City Court could feel a slightly bigger pinch than before.

Rockwood City Council approved the first reading of an ordinance to tack on a $5 “technology” fee at its meeting last month.

Rockwood Police Chief Danny Wright said the department has computers, tablets and software needs that this would go toward.

“It is our recommendation we don’t touch it the first year,” said Wright.

He wants to see the fund build up so the city can use it to upgrade technology as needed.
