Come to a City Council Meeting

Regular Meetings

Council meetings are held the second and fourth Mondays at 5 p.m. (unless otherwise published). These sessions are also broadcast live on CGTV, Channel 11. The agenda is available online. Or you can drop by City Hall for a copy or simply call the Clerk’s Office at 970-429-2687 for more information. Agendas are also posted every Monday in the Aspen Times.

There are citizen comment periods on the bimonthly City Council Agendas, and citizens can address the Council on issues not on the agenda. Your comments should be limited to 3 minutes.

Work Sessions

Work sessions for Council are on the first and third Monday of the month beginning at 5 p.m. Agendas are also available online and in the Monday ad.

Work sessions are also held every Tuesday. Beginning at 4 p.m. on Tuesdays, Council holds an informal discussion period. This is the perfect time to discuss a topic with Council without having to be a part of an agenda or without a formal public hearing or public comment period.

Want to bring an issue to the attention of City Council or have City Council formally address a particular topic? Call 970-920-5212.
