Longmont City Council
GOVERNANCE: The City of Longmont, is governed
by a seven member Council. The Mayor is elected to serve a two year term and
each Council member is elected to serve a four year term. The Mayor and Council
members are the leaders and policy makers in the community elected to represent
various segments of the community and to concentrate on policy issues that
are responsive to residents' needs and wishes.
CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS: The City Council meets on the second
and fourth Tuesdays of every month in a regular session at 7:00 p.m. in the
Civic Center Complex at 350 Kimbark. On the first and third Tuesday of every
month, the City Council holds a study session at 7:00 p.m. in the same location.
Study sessions, which generally cover only one or two topics, are designed
to allow the Council to talk on a more in depth level about issues than can
be done at regular sessions. No formal action may be taken by the Council
at a study session other than to direct staff to proceed in a certain manner
and to bring items back to a regular session for action. See the City Council Rules of Procedure for more information on how meetings and business in the City are conducted.
COFFEE WITH COUNCIL: Meet with City Council members on the last day of every month to discuss any topic. Meetings are generally held at local coffee houses in the city. See Coffee with Council Calendar.
COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT: During a previous goal setting retreat, City Council
discussed possible ways in which the City of Longmont could incorporate more
community involvement approaches in its service delivery that truly engages
residents as partners in facing complex community issues so that they are
more likely to take responsibility for sustaining solutions to those same
issues. As a result of its retreat discussion, City Council directed staff
to develop and implement a comprehensive approach for involving the Longmont
community in City service delivery and problem-solving efforts. Staff committees,
with community and Council input, created a community involvement approach
for the City of Longmont. This approach formalizes the process for how the
City determines when community involvement is important and how we can achieve
community involvement that is meaningful and productive for our entire community.
