St. Augusta’s Bob Kroll Looks Forward to 10th Year as Mayor [AUDIO]

Abby Faulkner

ST. AUGUSTA – It’s business as usual for the city of St. Augusta, as mayor re-elect Bob Kroll gears up for his tenth year on the job.

Kroll recently won over 97% of the vote after an unopposed run for the position.

The retired sign shop owner has lived in St. Augusta for over 40 years. He’s spent three-quarters of that time in some form of public service, first as a parks board member, then a city councilman and finally as a five-term mayor.

Kroll is proud of the progress his small community has made during his tenure, which includes the creation of an independent fire department in 2008, and plans in the works to build the city’s first water tower.

At the end of the day, Kroll says the best part of being mayor is hearing from the people. He says the population is engaged in the community and speak up when they have issues.

Kroll says, even though city government ‘”can’t please everybody,” they usually can solve any problem by “sitting down and hammering it out.”

Mayor Kroll says another core concern is road repair for the 30 square mile city, something they’ll tackle on a case-by-case basis as funding allows.

Kroll stresses the importance of an “open door policy” when it comes to leadership, and encourages community members to call him or stop by city meetings whenever they have something they’d like to discuss.
