Council to honor Rogers

Monday, July 22, 2013

Retiring city Police Chief Mike Rogers will be honored by Martinsville City Council on Tuesday.

Rogers, 54, has worked for the Martinsville Police Department since 1980, when he was hired as a patrol officer. He rose through the ranks, working in criminal investigations and vice and narcotics before he became sergeant of criminal investigations in 1992. Two years later, he was named sergeant of community policing and street crimes.

He became assistant police chief in August 1999 and two months later, he was promoted to chief.

Rogers recently told the Martinsville Bulletin that he is proud of the police department’s good reputation, based on compliments he had heard from residents as well as judges, lawyers and other legal system workers.

He will be honored when the council meets at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the municipal building on West Church Street uptown.

Other agenda items will include:

• Considering approval on first reading of ordinances pertaining to unlawful water/sewer discharges and the recovery of passport fees.

• Recognizing the reaccreditation of the Martinsville Sheriff’s Office.

• Presenting proclamations pertaining to National Night Out and Smith River Week.

• Considering possible dates and locations for neighborhood meetings for the fiscal year that started July 1.

• Hearing a report on city finances.

• Considering routine-type budget amendments.

• Hearing business from the floor.

At 7 p.m., the council will meet in closed session to discuss a personnel matter and consider possible appointments to boards and commissions.
