Senior center notice
In recent months, The City has had several questions regarding the General Obligation Bond that was passed, with regards to the Senior Citizen's Center. As stated in the G.O. Bond, the $70,000 was specified for facility maintenance only. These funds cannot legally be used for programming or operations at the Center.
Why should the clarification of this matter? The Senior Citizen's Center relies heavily on donations for funding of operations and programs. One such program is "Meals on Wheels". The loss of donations due to any misconception of the G.O. Bond could be devastating to this vital program and the Seniors that it aids. To be succinct: The G.O. Bond can and will be used help the facility be safe, ADA compliant, and energy efficient, it cannot legally help with programs such as "Meals on Wheels".

The roads in the Sharron Heights Subdivision are now complete; and the attached cul-de-sacs are soon to follow.

This will complete all opened road construction. The remaining overlay construction will begin after the 4th of July festivities.
The City of Rupert Mayor’s office has received reports that members of our community are being sent mailers about “Sanctuary Cities” – cities that do not cooperate with the federal government to enforce our nation’s immigration laws. In these mailers, residents are told that Rupert either is a Sanctuary City or is at risk of becoming a Sanctuary City and that residents should give money to an out-of-state group to fight this designation. City Hall is concerned that these mailers are a fraud.
Rupert is NOT a Sanctuary City and the City of Rupert is not considering any proposal to become a Sanctuary City. Mayor Mike Brown on 11/22/16, during a regular council meeting, has stated the City’s formal position that Rupert is NOT a Sanctuary City and has instructed all City personnel to cooperate in enforcing the law.
The City of Rupert cautions residents to investigate requests for donations generally and in particular to question donation requests claiming that Rupert is a Sanctuary City. City Hall welcomes requests for information when residents encounter these types of mailers.
