About Email Transparency

Under the Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) all emails to and from City Council are subject to public disclosure, with limited exceptions. To promote transparency, emails will be visible in an online archive, unless the sender puts #PRIVATE in the subject line of the email. However, the City of Fort Collins can't guarantee that email to or from Council marked "#PRIVATE" will remain private under CORA. Generally, the online archive will be updated twice a week.

Respectful Workplace Policy#

The Mayor and City Council are committed to providing an environment that exemplifies the highest standards of ethical behavior, treats others with dignity and respect and is known for its honesty, inclusivity and transparency. Adopted in 2019, the Fort Collins Respectful Workplace Policy embodies the City Council’s commitment to prevent and address discrimination; harassment, including sexual harassment; and retaliation. Discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in the workplace are against the law and will not be tolerated. 

Through adoption, implementation, and enforcement of this Respectful Workplace Policy (“Policy”) and through continuing education and training provided by or through the Human Resources Department (“HR”), the Fort Collins City Council seeks to prevent, address, and correct behavior that violates this Policy.
