Council Powers

Northglenn operates with a Council-Manager style of government. This means the city’s residents elect a governing body (known in Northglenn as City Council) that conducts the legislative functions of the city. In turn, the city manager executes the laws and administers the city’s government.

Some of the powers and responsibilities that City Council has include:
• Enacts local legislation
• Adopts the city’s budget
• Determines policies for the city
• Appoints the city manager
• Appoints the municipal judge
• Appoints members of city boards and commissions

Council consists of nine members, including the mayor. Two councilmembers are elected from each of the city’s four wards, while the mayor is elected at large, by the general public.

Councilmembers are elected for four-year terms. Per Colorado state law, the mayor and councilmembers are limited to two consecutive terms in office, but may serve more than two terms if they are not continuous.

Council assumes office at the first meeting following certification results. At this meeting, a Mayor Pro Tem is selected and council appointments are made to various boards and commissions.


The city is divided into four contiguous wards. The wards should approximately have the same amount of voters to assure equal representation.
