We were honored to have Mineral Wells City Manager Dean Sullivan speak at today's meeting. Dean discussed ongoing projects, including the development of Mineral Wells Regional Airport and the Turkey Peak reservoir project.
 
But the really good news is that one of the first things Sullivan as city manager tackled, and accomplished, is an interlocal agreement with Palo Pinto County Commissioners to begin improving city streets. The city will provide the engineering and materials, and all four county commissioners will provide the equipment and manpower for improvements designated in their precincts within the city. In the last quarter of this fiscal year about 4 miles will be repaired, with plans to do 25 miles of streets each year so that in five years all 132 miles of city-maintained streets will be repaired.
 
The county agreement will address streets where subgrade infrastructure repairs are not needed. Sullivan said about 25 miles of streets need water and sewer repairs below the street and will require the city to make those upgrades. Still, Sullivan said residents will soon begin seeing roads and streets improved.
 
Mineral Wells City Council approved the interlocal agreement Tuesday. County commissioners approved the agreement last week. Thank you Dean Sullivan for making this happen and bringing the city and county together in this partnership. Thank you city council and county commissioners for approving the agreement.
 
Attending the meeting with Sullivan were Mineral Wells Economic Director David Hawes and Finance Director Jason Breisch. Rotarian Tonya Gary was this week's program chair.
 
 
Rotary Club of Mineral Wells today presented $500 worth of books to Jacksboro ISD for its elementary school library damaged by the devastating March tornado.
 
Pictured with some of the donated books are Jacksboro ISD Superintendent Brad Burnett and JISD Director of Instruction Kristi Daws. Presenting the books on behalf of the club are club President Karyn Bullock, left, and Connie Ball, who coordinated the donation with JISD.
 
Mineral Wells Rotarians were treated last week to a performance by Community Christian School Mineral Wells’ One-Act Play troupe, performing a portion of its contest play, “King of the Moon.”
 
They recently swept #TCAF district contest honors, and next week will host state #OAP contest. Public performances will be available. Watch Community Christian School Mineral Wells' Facebook page for info and details.
 
Thanks to Doug Jefferson for bringing this talented group of students to our meeting to perform and share your success. Best of luck (er, break a leg!)
 
Rickhouse Brewing owners Brian Miller and Kristy Beck Miller returned to Rotary Club of Mineral Wells today to bring club members up to date on their new tavern venture.
 
Their official grand opening was Friday. They are now open seven days a week, located on the southeast corner of Crazy Water Plaza downtown.
 
All ales sold at Rickhouse are brewed there. Brian said he will typically keep about 16 varieties on tap, some which will be seasonal ales. They also offer wine. There will be some food offerings, but they have partnered with downtown restaurants to deliver food to customers at Rickhouse.
 
Brian said the brewery is more than a business, it is meant to be a destination.
 
The Millers are pictured with program Chair Raymond Greenwood.
