On Thursday, March 28, 2019, Mayors of Rock Island and Moline will sign the first-ever intergovernmental agreement between their cities and Rock Island Arsenal, to provide refuse and recycle collection services to the installation. The signing ceremony will be held at 9:30 a.m. in the Eagle Point housing area at the Arsenal. Mayors Stephanie Acri and Mike Thoms will sign along with RIA Garrison Commander Col. Stephen C. Marr.
The ceremony culminates a five-month effort by Installation Management Command that brought together installation and community stakeholders in a plan that benefits all, and leverages the strengths of federal, state and local governments. The Army Community Partnership program, which provided the basis for the agreement, has proven success in producing a wide range of mutually beneficial partnerships between communities and military installations. Rock Island Arsenal is committed to enhancing Army readiness and building positive, mutually beneficial relationships with the communities surrounding the installation.
