County Council


The Weld County Council is charged to review all aspects of County government and makes periodic written reports to the people. The Council invites Weld County citizens and employees to present their comments, ideas, or concerns regarding Weld County government for the Council to review.

In addition to reviewing county government, the Council has five functions defined in the Weld County Home Rule Charter:

  1. Set salaries of elected county officials.
  2. Fill vacancies on the Board of County Commissioners and on the Weld County Council.
  3. May suspend an elected official formally charged or indicted for the commission of a crime or when a valid petition for recall of an elected official is presented.
  4. Review conflicts of interest between any county officer, member of an appointed board, or employee, and any enterprise or organization doing business with Weld County.
  5. To consider requests from the Board of County Commissioners to grant an increased mill levy.


We encourage your attendance, interest, and participation.
The Council meets on the third Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m. except in February when the meeting is held on the second Monday of the month. 

Council meetings are a matter of public record. The Weld County Council, created by the Weld County Home Rule Charter, consists of five nonpartisan, elected members; one representing each of the three county districts and two at-large members.
