UPDATE ON STATUS OF THE ROCKVILLE / SPRINGDALE FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT
On May 1st, 2018 the RSFPD was replaced by the Hurricane Valley Fire District. The Washington County Commissioners revoked the RSFPD's authority to govern itself financially in an early December of 2017 meeting. On May 1st, Fire Chief Ryan Ballard, all 26 fire fighters and emergency service providers, as well as the District Secretary, lost their jobs. Over the last 30 years, the RSFPD procured property, built the Fire Station, acquired fire apparatus, and took over the ambulance service Springdale no longer wanted to provide. A half a million dollar reserve was built and the RSFPD was approved for a grant to acquire a new fire truck.
Washington County Solid Waste will be increasing their fees for garbage collection by 25 cents per month,

This does not affect BluCan Recycling, only garbage billing.

This is a new book about Rockville’s history and is a project completed by the Rockville Historic Preservation Commission for Rockville’s 150 Year Celebration. In 1999, the Utah Division of State History and the National Park Service provided grant funds to the Commission to make an archival photographic collection of people, places, and events important to the historical record of Rockville and surrounding communities. After the photographs were collected, some were framed and mounted and are hanging in the Rockville Community Center. The book Historic Rockville includes these pictures and explains the stories behind the photographs and Rockville’s history. The book is available at the Town of Rockville office and is also available on line at www.graftonheritage.org.
