Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to ALL!!

The transfer station has continually played a huge role for the residents of the City of Rocksprings and Edwards County. To maintain a clean and sanitary transfer station, it is important to conduct routine maintenance and clean-up at the facility, as our customer's safety is the City's top concern and priority.

The good news is that regular household trash will be allowed to be taken to the transfer station during its normal operating hours, Monday and Tuesday 8-12 and 1-4. Please take note – NO brush, wood of any kind, aluminum or metal will be accepted at this time.

Also, if you have not picked up a city trash receptacle for your household garbage, please contact City Hall and arrange for one to be delivered to you. City employees have been advised and instructed not to pick up trash that is not in a designated City receptacle. They will not pick up bags left on the ground, so we ask that you place your bags inside the receptacles. The City ordinance also specifies that no loose trash shall be put inside the receptacles, all trash must be bagged.

A reminder to City residents that dogs must always be kept on a leash or in an enclosure and not be allowed to roam the streets freely per City ordinance.

A Note about Trash

If you have not received a copy of the receptacle ordinance, please come by City Hall and pick up a copy. We have both English and Spanish versions available. Our City workers have been informed to follow the ordinance when picking up trash, and we appreciate your help.

Did you know??...

Water leaks can cause damage to your home, unwanted organic growth and a higher than average water bill. Unfortunately, because one cannot see most of your pipework in your home and property, you may not always know that leak has formed.

One of the most common leaks is a toilet leak. Did you know that leaving a toilet "running" can actually use many hundreds of gallons over a period of time?

Rust and other forms of corrosion may eat away at the pipe if you have an older plumbing system.

Where pipes connect often represents the weakest point in a line and over time pipe joints can deteriorate causing leaks.

Tree roots can intrude on water lines causing a leak and lending to moisture that seeps out into your yard.

Rapid temperature changes, such as we have in Rocksprings, can also contribute to leaks. Temperature changes can force the pipes to expand and contract, and that expansion may cause pipes to crack.

Extra water usage associated with summertime such as extra watering of your yard and filling up swimming pools can also contribute to a higher water bill.

The presence of these circumstances listed above often indicated a high risk of leaks. So if you have noticed an increase in your water bill, please check to make sure that none of these circumstances exist.

Mayor and City Council

City Council – Just what is a City Council and what do they do?

A city council is a form of government that is used in many towns and cities around the world. The members of the council are elected by the citizens, and they work together to pass laws, make general policies, supervise city government, and appropriate funds for various needs. They are elected every two years.

Collectively, your Rocksprings City Council empowers the democratic process by local decision-making and action by, and on behalf of our community. They are your voice for a better community. Meetings are held the second Monday of every month at City Hall, 100 Austin Street, (unless otherwise noted). Meetings commence at 6:00pm. We invite you to participate in local government.
