City Leadership

The Fort Collins City Council is composed of six district Council members who are elected on a non-partisan basis for a term of four years, and a Mayor who is elected at-large for a two-year term. The Mayor Pro Tem is chosen from among the entire Council and serves a term of two years.

The City Council serves as the community's legislative body, having responsibilities for enacting City ordinances, appropriating funds to conduct City business, and providing policy direction to City staff. By provision of the City Charter, Council has the power of appointment over the City Manager, City Attorney, and Municipal Court Judge.

Please read the following before contacting members of Council or the City Manager:

  • All correspondence is public information and will be treated accordingly.
  • You can e-mail all City Councilmembers and the City Manager at once by using:
