Message from Mayor Gierisch
It is hard to believe we witnessed snow and ice just a few weeks ago. Spring is here, and the City of Roanoke is prepared to celebrate! From our nine beautiful parks to several great street festivals and local events, you can fill your calendars with plans in Roanoke. Our popular Roanoke Farmers Market kick off date is April 1st. Following the launch of the market, from Noon-3:00 PM on April 1st, is our awesome Eggapalooza egg hunt. Roanoke’s signature Evenings on Oak Street Concert Series begins this April and runs through June. Be sure to save the date for our annual Roanoke Round Up this May 6th. We have a big musical guest announcement coming very soon, helping make Round Up one of the best Roanoke events to date.
The Roanoke Fire Department recently obtained a new brush truck. The truck carries 350 gallons of water and 15 gallons of firefighting foam. The Roanoke Fire Department deployed 16 times to wildfires in the State of Texas last year, utilizing the Department brush truck. The new truck will allow for continued support to the State, and service for local needs. Thanks to our dedicated public safety teams, Roanoke continues to be one of the safest cities in Texas.
I hope to run into you at one of our great local businesses, awesome events, or while strolling our beautiful City with my lovely wife.
