City Council
City Council is the legislative and governing body of Commerce City. The nine members establish the vision for the city, set annual goals to achieve that vision and enact the laws that govern our citizens. City Council annually reviews and approves the city budget. They also appoint the city manager, city attorney, and municipal court judge, as well as members of boards and commissions.  

Commerce City Telephone Town Hall
Learn more about what’s happening in the city, ask questions and provide input on important projects.

City Council will host a series of telephone town hall meetings this year to provide residents an easy way to engage in city government from the comfort of their home. This hour-long call the third Wednesday of every other month is an opportunity to share city information, get feedback on projects such as the new recreation center, and answer questions about services or issues.

Telephone town halls are a new way council members are reaching out to residents. Last year, more than 1,200 individuals participated in two meetings, providing feedback that helped shape programming plans for the recreation centers.
These events will be at 7 p.m. the third Wednesday of every other month:
  • April 20
  • June 15
  • August 17
  • October 19
  • December 21
