Mayor and City Council
Council members make policy decisions on a variety of city issues
Council members make policy decisions on a variety of city issues, such as approving the annual city budget. They are given the authority to approve resolutions and enact and provide for the enforcement of ordinances, which are city laws. They also appoint the City Manager, who serves the Council and citizens and is responsible for city staff and day-to-day management.
Castle Pines is governed by a Mayor and six City Council members. The City is divided into three “Wards” of approximately 3,500 residents. Each Ward is represented by two City Council members with staggered four-year terms. The City Council meets the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at the Douglas County Library, 360 Village Square Lane. The Mayor presides over the meeting using an agenda. Citizens are actively encouraged to attend and participate in these meetings. Citizens who want to address Council sign up when they arrive and are asked to speak at the podium when the agenda item is discussed.
