The City of Republic – we’re in the middle of everywhere!  Our location near Interstate 44, Route 360 (James River Freeway), and U.S. 60, along with our direct access to the BNSF Railway, makes Republic a premier destination for warehousing, distribution, and logistics services.  Our Mission is to be Aggressively Progressive through Processes, Relationships, and Trust so that we may “move at the speed of business.”  We understand that with exponential growth comes exponential opportunity, and the City of Republic stays focused on utilizing that opportunity for the best interest of our citizens.

But we’re not strictly about business.  We are committed to making Republic a place where people want to live, work, and play!  We are home to the largest municipal water park in the region – The Rush – and our Parks & Recreation Department is in the business of making memories through their programs and events.  We maintain a positive working relationship with Republic R-3 Schools, and our focus on public safety ensures that our Police and Fire teams receive needed resources to keep citizens safe.  Our top priority is, and will remain, our citizens, which is why we continue to invest in public safety and strong infrastructure that will support Republic for years to come.

We are one unit with one sole vision – to do the Right Thing at the Right Time for the Right Reason.
