Town Council

About Us
Minturn was incorporated in 1904 and became a home rule government in 1982. The Town Council is comprised of six council members and a Mayor, all elected by Minturn’s voting population. Council terms of office are for four years and a Mayor’s term is two. Regular elections are held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in April and biennially thereafter. The Council appoints the Planning Commission and the Town Administrator/Manager who is responsible for overseeing the town staff.

In collaboration with our community, foster the authentic small-town character that is Minturn. (weblink to the full Strategic Plan located in the top left corner of this page) 

Lead Minturn to long-term viability while preserving its unique character and genuine mountain town community. (weblink to the full Strategic Plan located in the top left corner of this page)

Our Purpose
The purpose of the Town Council is to provide a forum, through a town meeting, to identify and discuss issues of concern, to represent the residents and businesses in the Town of Minturn, and to work together with government agencies and local organizations to meet the needs of our community. Meetings are held the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month at 5:30pm in Minturn Town Hall, 302 Pine Street Minturn, CO 81645. Minturn Town Council meetings can be viewed on television or online. For more information, please visit the High Five Access Media website.
