I do not believe the actions toward renaming the center had anything to do with the fire department, but since you brought it up, let me ask you a few questions:

Are you opposed to properly funding the Fire Department???

Is it more important to you to have a community gathering place than someone to come to your home in the event of a fire or medical problem???

The City Council will have many difficult choices to make in the coming days. Without funding the fire department properly there can be no guarantee anyone will be there to help you when you need it.

The long time volunteer fire department is gone. It was an amazing part of the community for decades, but it is gone and it is not coming back.

Without properly funding ESSENTIAL city services like police, fire, streets, water, sewer, and trash you cannot meet the needs of the community.

Without drastic changes, there can be no drastic improvements to the community. Many people get on here and blame the Mayor and City Council for letting the community become a run down slum. Reality is, poor choices by many past city councils and mayors set the stage for the struggles of today. No one noticed the negative effects of these decisions 25+ years ago because RO was a quiet, mostly white bedroom community. The demographic of the town has changed. That's not the Mayor or City Council's fault, it is the fault of all the property owners who have given up on RO and allowed their properties to become run down rentals or sold them to people who have no pride in the ownership of their home.

Quit trash talking and bitching and get out and make an honest effort to make this town better. Help a neighbor clean up their place, empty a bucket of water before mosquito larvae develop, paint your house, mow your yard, and park on your freaking driveway instead of in the grass!!!
