At the September 11th City Council Meeting, Mayor Patrick R. Rios proclaimed Friday, September 21, 2018 as POW/MIA RECOGNITION DAY in the City of Rockport and urged all citizens to observe this day of honor and remembrance and pay special tribute to our Nation’s current and former Prisoners of War, those still listed as Missing in Action, and their families. Mayor Rios was joined by representatives of the local Veterans’ organizations, who then presented the City with a POW/MIA flag.
ATTENTION WATER CUSTOMER CLIENTS
During the week of September 10, the City of Rockport’s Public Works Department will change the type of disinfectant used in the water supply to kill bacteria in the drinking water and water pipe system and provide a reliable disinfectant residual throughout all points in the distribution system. Typically, the City uses chloramines, but is undertaking this method to keep the level of residuals up and reduce the need of flushing the system, which results in a waste of water.

LONG TERM RECOVERY ACTION PLAN
This past year, in collaboration with Texas Sea Grant at Texas A&M University, the Aransas County Long Term Recovery Team (LTRT) and all jurisdictions within the County have drafted an Aransas County Long Term Recovery Action Plan and Report. The Report was written to lay out a plan to detail our actions after Hurricane Harvey and to document the challenges we faced along the way in the Long Term Recovery process. The Aransas County Long Term Recovery Action Plan Report’s final draft has been posted for public comment. Click here for the link. Please note that it is a very large document and will take some time to load. You do not have to join Dropbox to view.
