Town Board

Town of Westcliffe 1953
Town of Westcliffe in 1953.

Westcliffe is a statutory Town.  This means that we as a community have not adopted our own charter, and thus defer to statutory state laws, which is Colorado Revised Statutes.

The form of government is a Board of Trustees made up of the Mayor and the Trustees.  The Town Board is the legislative body that determines laws and policies for Westcliffe.  The Town Manager, Town Clerk/Administrator, along with staff, is charged with carrying out the decisions of the Town Board and for the day-to-day administration required in the operations of the Town.

Westcliffe has opted out of term limits by voter approval at the April 1998 election.  Trustees and Mayor may serve an unlimited number of terms but must run for election at the end of each four-year term.

The Mayor and Town Trustees serve on various committees, boards, and advisory groups.

Neither the Mayor nor the Trustee has regular business hours at Town Hall. Each Trustee is available by contacting Town Hall and leaving a message with the Office.

Town Board meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month at Town Hall. The meetings begin at 5:30 pm. The agendas are posted at Town Hall and website. Workshops are scheduled by the Town Board on an as-needed basis. Direct any questions regarding Town Board meetings and/or work sessions to the Town Clerks office at 719-783-2282.

 
Your Elected Officials

Board members are elected on an at-large basis; meaning elected by all registered electors of the Town rather than by a specific district or ward within the Town.  Terms of office are staggered so three Trustees are elected at one election and the Mayor and three Trustees are elected at the next succeeding election.

The elected governing body is responsible for adopting policies and procedures with the intent to foster a community where people want to live, work, and visit.  The Board of Trustees follows the Code of Conduct.


The Mayor and Town Board members do not have offices at Town Hall.
