The Mayor says...

Hi, I'm Mayor Roger Fritz. I'm proud of leading a safe, prosperous community. I'm proud to say that we are a young town, with 25% of our residents aged 14 and under. I love talking about our 5 year, $75,000 tax abatement for new construction. Join me in making Roland your home.

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.
