The Manitou Springs City Council is composed of 7 members. The Mayor serves a 2-year term while the other 6 Councilmembers serve overlapping 4-year terms. All 7 members are elected by the citizens. All Manitou Springs residents vote for the Mayor and the 3 At- Large Councilmembers. Only residents living within a Ward can vote for that Ward's Councilmember. If a Councilmember resigns or is unable to continue in office, the City Council appoints a replacement member for the duration of the uncompleted term or until the next regular election. City Councilmembers also serve as liaisons to various City departments, boards and commissions, and other local and regional agencies. Click to view 2016 Council Liaison Appointments.
