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. The Council's Priorities are available for review on the City Manager's Work Program page. The Work Program highlights major work activity assigned to City staff in order to accomplish the Council's current priorities.
In addition to their annual meeting, the Council also meets regularly to conduct City business.
