The council approved a proclamation recognizing May 12-18 as Police Week within the city.

The council approved a proclamation recognizing May 19-25 as Emergency Medical Services Week.

The council approved a proclamation that recognizes Wednesday, May 22 as Poppy Day. The proclamation asks citizens to “pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom” by wearing red poppies distributed by the American Legion Auxiliary.

The council approved a proclamation recognizing Thursday, May 25, as Arbor Day within the city. The proclamation urges citizens to “support efforts to protect our trees and woodlands”, “support our city’s urban forestry program” and to “plant trees to gladden the hearts and promote the well-being of present and future generations.” Also recognized in the proclamation was Rugby’s recognition as a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation.

Ward 2 Councilman Gary Kraft and Ward 4 Councilman Chuck Longie were absent for the meeting.

Rugby’s City Council typically meets at 7:30 p.m. on the first Monday of each month. May’s meeting had been rescheduled due to a lack of a quorum the week prior.
