Municipal Code & Charter

The online version of the Greeley Municipal Code and Charter is provided by Municode. Take note of the "updated through" date, as there may be additional ordinances that have not yet been codified. Contact us for more information at 970-350-9740 or cityclerk@greeleygov.com.

To keep a municipal code up to date, and current with changes in state statutes and case law, recodification is recommended at regular intervals. The last time the Greeley Municipal Code was recodified was in 1994. A recodification has been underway since 2018, and was adopted by the Council on April 6, 2021. 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.


Below are links to information about the recodification, including:
2021 Code in full for adoptionThe full 2021 Greeley Municipal Code as presented to the City Council for final adoption on April 6, 2021. This new code will take effect on May 11, 2021.

Open Records Requests

The City of Greeley Open Records Request Policy reflects the decentralized authority for records management in the organization. Each department is responsible for maintaining and providing its own records. 

If you know which department maintains the records you would like to inspect or obtain, contact that department directly. The Clerk's Office can assist if there are questions about which department holds a particular record, or in the event of a request involving multiple departments.

Submit a Public Records Request form to the department holding the records being requested.
There may be a fee associated with your request, based upon staff time and actual costs required for producing the requested information.

Requests for records related to City Council or the City Manager's Office, as well as for complex requests involving multiple departments can be submitted directly to the City Clerk's Office.

Records for the Greeley Police Department must be obtained through the Police Records Division.

Boards and Commissions

Boards and Commissions are groups of resident volunteers that study special community issues and provide direction, comment and recommendations to the City Council. These 23 groups are the voice of the community; they influence public policy and programming decisions that can affect the entire city.

Access meeting calendars, agendas, minutes, and video where available for meetings of City Boards and Commissions in the City Meeting Portal.
