Message from City Manager Cody Petree
The City of Roanoke continues to grow in incredible ways! As we grow, we find innovative ways to serve the community. Our staff has welcomed several new additions to the team including: Andrew Davis, IT Specialist, and David Allen, GIS Program Administrator. In addition, we celebrated Ethan Powell who was promoted from part-time to full-time Firefighter/EMT. We are also proud to welcome many returning, and several new, part-time summer staff who will assist with our summer parks and recreation programs and activities. The City of Roanoke is a great place to work! If you are interested in joining the team, click here to learn more and apply.
During the May 9th City Council meeting, the Council unanimously approved new operating hours for Roanoke’s City Hall. The Human Resources team made operating hours recommendations to Council after several months of research. That research included tallying the results of an internal employee survey, and compiling the information collected from other municipalities with similar schedules. The goal is to continue to offer Monday-Friday customer service at City Hall while also allowing City Hall staff to try an alternative work schedule. The new operating hours began June 7th and are 8:00 AM – 5:30 PM Monday through Thursday, and Friday 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM (noon). The City of Roanoke continues to have talented and dedicated employees. Our staff offers outstanding customer service to our residents and businesses. We look forward to continuing to serve our community well, while also serving our staff well, by trying a new alternative work schedule.
Roanoke is growing! There are several construction projects underway as our business community grows. We update this page with current building projects and proposals.
The Roanoke Police Department enjoyed spending time with residents during their Coffee with a Cop event. Thank you to all who attended. We enjoyed getting to know you and chatting over a cup of coffee.
