City Council

Greeley City Council

The City of Greeley operates with a Council-Manager form of government with the Council acting as the legislative body for the city, adopting laws and policies and setting priorities to guide the city.

Council members are residents of Greeley who care deeply about their city and choose to serve their community as an elected official to maintain and improve Greeley's quality of life. Council members, with the exception of the Mayor, do not have offices at City Hall. There are a total of seven elected council members, including the Mayor.

The Council meets annually to evaluate the state of the City. Based on data, discussions with staff, and public input, the Council sets priorities which guide Greeley City government for the upcoming year.

In early 2020, the council engaged in a strategic visioning session to developed a long-range strategic vision to set priorities and direction for Greeley; Greeley City Council 2040 Vision for 2040. City Council then worked with staff to develop priorities for the next three years that would help achieve this vision; Greeley City Council 3-Year Priorities.

In addition to their annual meeting, the Council also meets regularly to conduct City business.

Municipal Code Recodification

Ordinances adopted by the City Council are arranged into a single code in a process called codification. Periodically, it is necessary to complete a recodification to ensure everything in the Greeley Municipal Code is up to date, and is in full compliance with changes to state law and other provisions. The City has been working on a recodification project since 2018 that was adopted by the Council on April 6, 2011. The new 2021 Greeley Municipal Code will be effective on May 11, 2021, and will replace the 1994 Code on that day online and in application. The 2021 Greeley Municipal Code includes significant changes to the numbering used, as well as make other needed updates to the structure of the Code.

Learn more about the recodification by reviewing the following documents:
Recodification Final Proofs from 9-16-2020: This document is a mark up version of the changes being made to standardize Code titles, articles, catchlines, and terms; rearrange or combine sections to improve flow; and clarify and update language and rewritings of specific sections, including reconciling penalty classifications.
2021 Code Comparative Table: Because the new 2021 code includes changes to the numbering structure, this table provides links between the 1994 Code sections and the 2021 Code sections.
2021 Code in full for adoption: The full 2021 Code presented to the City Council and adopted on April 6, 2021. This new code will take effect on May 11, 2021.
