Tips for Collection:

Place yard waste in biodegradable paper lawn bags or 32-gallon trash cans (weight must be less than 50 pounds).

*Place materials at the curb, not the alleyways.

*Place in an unobstructed area by 6 a.m. 

*Do not use any plastic bags.

Annual Report Highlights Rockville’s Fiscal Year 2019 Accomplishments

Year in Review Looks at How the City Government is Serving the Community

Rockville, Maryland, Sept. 4 — Learn about the City of Rockville’s accomplishments over the past fiscal year in City Manager Rob DiSpirito’s Fiscal Year 2019 annual report to the Mayor and Council and the Rockville community.

“I am pleased to report in these pages our progress on some of the community’s highest priorities, including pedestrian safety, community policing, government efficiency and effectiveness, economic development that attracts and retrains quality businesses and employers, and investments in parks and recreational services that improve your quality of life,” DiSpirito wrote in his letter introducing the report.

Rockville’s FY 2019 accomplishments include:

•       Ninety-four percent of residents responding to the city’s 10th biennial survey said their quality of life in Rockville was excellent (39 percent) or good (55 percent).

•       A perfect score, for the second consecutive year, on the Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index scorecard for Rockville’s commitment to the health, welfare, safety and equality of its lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community.

•       Reaffirmation by ratings agencies of the city’s triple-A credit rating, which saves tax dollars by allowing Rockville to borrow at the lowest possible interest rates and is an indication of the city’s sound financial health and financial management practices.

•       $70,000 in total value of food, cash, toys and gift cards collected through donations by more than 190 individuals, businesses and community organizations through the city’s annual Holiday Drive.

The report is presented as a four-page insert in the September issue of “Rockville Reports,” which is mailed to all homes within the city limits. A PDF image of the print edition is available by visiting RockvilleReports.com, then selecting “Annual Report 2019” in the right-hand column.
