City Council

About Rocky Ford City Council

Rocky Ford City Council was established by ordinance. The Colorado State Legislature has defined two types of government for city and town councils, either statutory or home rule. Statutory cities follow a form defined by statute. Home rule cities write their own charter and define their own powers and duties. Statutory cities are described as either strong mayor or council-manager. Citizens of Rocky Ford voted to have a council-manager form of government where a single professional manager assumes responsibility for city departments, personnel, and finances (as opposed to the strong-mayor form, in which the council assumes these responsibilities). City council hires and fires the city manager, establishes policies, and advises the manager. Council is responsible for granting or rescinding liquor licenses.
