Government Affairs

The Government Affairs Department was established by City Council in 2007 to ensure the City of Rifle has a voice in regional, state and federal issues of concern to the City. 

This department is responsible for researching, analyzing, and monitoring legislative and regulatory activities that may impact the City of Rifle, developing draft policy position statements for Council consideration, and working with government officials - including senators and house members, issues-related subcommittees, and citizens to convey legislative goals. 

This department is also responsible for researching and submitting proposals for grant funding opportunities and assisting departments with progress reporting requirements and financial submissions pertaining to specific grants and serves as a point of contact for the media.
