Rockwall Mayor Pruitt announces open office hours at City Hall

ROCKWALL, TX (Jan. 20, 2015) Rockwall Mayor Jim Pruitt has announced he will have open office hours each Monday from Noon to 4 P.M. at Rockwall City Hall, 385 S. Goliad Street (one block south of the Downtown Square).

“My goal is to make sure every citizen has access to the City of Rockwall.  Giving the residents a central location to meet one on one lets them know that their concerns are important and this gives them an opportunity to talk about matters important to them and their families.  If you need to meet another day or another time, just call me and we will individually schedule a more convenient time,” the mayor said.

Since taking office on December 15th, Mayor Pruitt has also announced his vision for the city, which includes increasing the size and quality of new homes; continuing to focus on improving roads and transportation; emphasizing parks and recreation programs; moving ahead with development of city-owned property at The Harbor; encouraging more residents to get involved in city volunteer opportunities; and helping to promote school outreach programs for parents, which include education regarding the prevention of drug use and teen suicide and the dangers of the internet.

Pruitt declared that officials must also concentrate on fiscal responsibility that focuses on the growth in expenditures, stating that increased expenditures should be no greater than the rate of inflation plus the increase in population.

“I am proud that I was part of the council that decreased the tax rate paid by our citizens this past year,” he said.  “I assure you that I will work hard to continue this conservative trend.”  Mayor Pruitt added, “I am so honored to be your mayor, and I look forward to working with each of you to make this the best city in the State of Texas.”

Citizens may contact Mayor Pruitt at  or at (469) 698-8550.
