In December 2005 a joint venture between the District One and Rock Point Chapter were proud to open a sub-station to the Rock Point community. The local Chapter designated an old Headstart building, located within the in-use 9.63 acre of the Chapter compound as the District One sub-office.
The gateway to expand future governmental services to the residents and constituents of Rock Point and surrounding Chapters was long-established through the strong partnership of both entities. Preparations were immediately arranged to celebrate the establishment of the sub-office.
The District One staff, coordinated ground-breaking festivities to thank the community and local officials of Rock Point for their admirable effort and endless support. As part of the Dine (Navajo) custom, a traditional practitioner performed a ceremony to bless the new establishment of the 2.61-parcel of land and the building.
On August 29, 2006, with the support of the community and chapter officials, Chapter President, Clarence C. Begay and Board of Supervisor Jim Claw signed a lease agreement to ensure the patronage of continued services.
The office is fully staffed with four personnel they include an Office Manager, Administrative Coordinator, and two Heavy Equipment Operators. There are two graders and one semi-truck used daily to carry out the road maintenance activities on school bus routes in surrounding communities of Rock Point, Mexican Water, and Dennehotso.
The total miles administered by the Rock Point sub-office is 50 miles which includes all three chapters. There are ten (10) county bus routes that are maintained in Rock Point, four (4) bus routes in Dennehotso and one (1) bus route in Mexican Water.
Apache County Rock Point sub-office has a goal to work closely with Rock Point, Dennehotso, and Mexican Water Chapters. Rock Point sub-office will continue to incorporate a positive partnership.
