The Mayor

The Mayor says...

Hi, I'm Mayor Jerry Balmer and I am excited to be representing the city of Roland. We are a safe, prosperous community focused on being a great place for families. We have top-notch schools, excellent youth sports programs, a modern city pool, several beautiful parks and a very nice library focused on serving citizens. Check us out and join our growing community!

Roland-Story Middle School

Roland-Story Middle School

Our kids go to Roland-Story Community Schools. Grades 5-8 are right here at Roland Middle School. Graduates of Roland-Story have a composite ACT score 2 points over the national average, and 1 point over the state average.

Roland Library

Roland Library

The current library opened in 2010 and is home to a great children's section, computers, DVDs, a guinea pig, and even books! It is our hub for activity on Main Street and is open six days a week.

Britson Park

Britson Park

Roland's newest attraction is Britson Park, on the city's west side. It has two softball/little league baseball fields, a playground structure, and lots of open area for soccer and pickup football games. The Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals donated a combined total of $15,000 to get the park going.
