Message from the Mayor


Matt Russell

Mayor, City of Republic

On behalf of the City of Republic, I want to welcome you to our community's website. We are located in the Southwest region of the State, and our population is approximately 17,000.  We anticipate a significant population increase as a result of the 2020 census.  

Republic, Missouri, is growing with new businesses and housing developments happening. We attribute our City's growth to our dedication to our Mission of being progressively aggressive through Processes, Relationships, and Trust and our Vision of growing together by always doing the right thing at the right time for the right reason. These fundamentals are our driving force daily and why we do what we do.

We celebrate those growth opportunities and know there is more to come. Businesses such as Flat Creek, Arris' Pizza, Big Whiskeys, ROI, and Lew's/Strike King have been a welcome addition to our community. Further growth is coming with Convoy of Hope and several other exciting new opportunities. The exciting thing is that we are not even close to being done yet!

We continue to grow on the residential side of things. There are 1000 homes in development at this exact moment in Republic. We can only be excited about the next phase of growth because we know there is more to come for our great community.

Our City Council takes pride in their leadership and understands their responsibility to the citizens that elected them. However, without the solid base of the employees of the City, we would not be where we are today. Without them, the growth and progress would be nothing but a dream. The employees are the ones making it happen.

Most of all, thank you to all the citizens of Republic who make our community great. We appreciate your support for an even brighter tomorrow.

All the best,

Mayor Matt Russell
