City Council
A Message From the MayorCity Council 2013
Welcome to Durango!  As officials of our wonderful city, we are excited about creating a thriving, healthy quality of life for the Durango community and we work hard to keep the flavor of Durango's fascinating historical heritage very much alive. With over 550 full- and part-time employees, plus seasonal help, our goal is to provide excellence in city government with outstanding results.

Our Commitment
We strive to offer great facilities and services that meet our residents' and visitors' needs. We are dedicated to promoting a sustainable economic viability while we responsibly steward our community's resources. And finally, we have a strong commitment to protect our environment and preserve the open space of our beautiful natural lands. We hope you enjoy Durango as much as we do!

Duties & Responsibilities
All City Council members serve the community at large and thus do not represent specific wards or precincts. The mayor is recognized as the head of the city government and presides at all meetings, but has no regular administrative duties and no power of veto. The position of mayor is held by a councilmember for one year and the current members of council vote amongst themselves each April to decide who will hold the mayor and mayor pro tem position. The City Council makes policy and legislative decisions for the City of Durango.
