The Mayor and City Council serve the citizens and create policies for the city to follow. There are three wards in Castle Pines, with two City Council members each, elected by the citizens of Castle Pines. View the ward map (pdf).

 

The Mayor is elected by the community at large. In addition to making policy decisions on a variety of city issues, the Mayor and Council approve the annual city budget and determine the city's yearly property tax rates. The Mayor, Council members and elected officials give a significant amount of time volunteering to serve the community as they are not paid a salary.
