Seriously folks does any one see something wrong with a fire dept that is more then 100 yrs old and still goes on call with trucks over 10 yrs old? and when they take the ladder truck out it looks awful with all the damage on the side of it. It has been damaged for over a year now... something is bad wrong especially when right down the road you got a VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPT. Better AND more stations all brand new trucks and they have been around since around 93? I think they are called West Roane COUNTY VFD. What is wrong with the city dept that has a budget? you would think some of the taxes would go to the old run down fire dept. yea they gotta new medical responder truck but thats all they have got in over 10 yrs. well besides hand me downs. May rockwood needs a more PROACTIVE chief or hey just start a petition to contract the better VOLUNTEER Fire Dept. thats just down the road.

Look in the Roane Co. News at the number of people and businesses in Rockwood that STILL hasn't paid their property taxes. And they are the first to BITCH. It takes money, our fair share to run the city departments. The lowest tax rate around, and the SLUM LORDS still won't pay, yet their shacks are the first to burn.

One of rockwood finest have not paid there property tax. Kendall and Joni Mitchell are right there in black and white for all to see. I thought police officers and firefighters are suppose to be held to higher standards than us the regular citizens. Why would anyone have to pay they tax if a Rockwood Policeman does not have to. Them men are just a bunch a clowns.Get this guy off the police department he is a discrace to this little town.

maybe you all should consider purchasing a tax deed certificate on their properties then they have two choices, pay the taxes plus interest back to you or loose their property to you.

Im glad you mentioned this, Ill be looking into some rockwood property tomorrow morning :)

We will never get rid of old Thompson. He will always show up somewhere. He wasted space at the Middle School for yrs and you think great he's gone but guess again. Don't know what good he is really he has just been around kids his whole life he is bound to act just like them.

BTW he does not have anything to do with the skating rink any more. Can't you tell? It is a lot safer and cleaner and all that crap that went on when he was there is gone.

I think this is funny as hell. All the issues in this town with the council, audits, water and gas dept in shambles, the mayor and vice mayor at each others throats and you bunch of retards think if Kendall Mitchell pays his property tax all Rockwoods problems will go away. God have mercy on you stupid people.

That is really only his business if he owes taxes. I don't even see why people would notice them. There are alot more problems then who owes taxes. Such as: no jobs because there aren't any industries. Vacant houses, vacant businesses. I could go on and on about Rockwood being a dying town.

To get back to the subject. Ten years is not that old. We can't afford a new truck. It's not like there is a fire everyday. West Ro. Co has better equipment because they are always having fund raisers. I understand wanting a new truck though. I want a new car. I'm not going to get that either.

I know that he doesn't oversee it. I think it is his brother that runs it now and he and his family does a good job. They have really made it safer for families. When it closed if the parents wasn't there Bill wouldn't care at all to put a 6 yr old outside by themselves.

Cops and Firemen are held to a higher standard then ordinary citizens? If you ask me the City Council and the Appointed Boards of the City are the ones who should be held to a higher standard. Conflict of interest, favoritism, back-stabbing, etc. are the issues plaguing our city government. How many ordinary people benefit from some of the decision these people make? None! Cops and Firemen have not had a raise in years until a few months ago. Nor has any other ordinary city employees. Unless your one of the elite, rich, or played on the State Championship Team over 30 yrs ago, you ain't shit to any of them. Oh yeah. You have to go to the Baptist Church on Chamberlain Ave also to be consider anything above ordinary. The political crew in this town are the hypocrites. Not the Cops and Firemen. If your house catches fire or someone breaks into it while your gone to the store, don't call 911, call a crackhead. See if they will help you out.

West Roane has a Chief that knows how to sit down and write a Grant request, which takes a little bit of time and knowlage to do. You would be surprised to learn how much of the cost for that equip. was paid for by the Federal Gov. but they just dont just hand it to you it takes some work to get it done. Key word here is WORK
