Who Councilmembers Are
You're represented by your friends and neighbors
Do you know your district Councilmember? Chances are, he or she could be your next door neighbor, a work colleague or a Downtown business owner. Councilmembers are typical Castle Rock residents who made a choice to serve and become involved in their local government. They are parents, grandparents, full-time workers or retirees. They are residents of a great community they care deeply about.
A time investment
The position of a Councilmember is not an easy one. Making the decision to run for Council not only means attending Council meetings twice a month, but many other obligations as well. Being a Councilmember can be a rewarding experience, but there is a tremendous time commitment involved also. Not only do Councilmembers attend Council meetings that can last until 10 p.m. or later, they attend ribbon cuttings, grand openings, dedication ceremonies, conferences and other community functions and school events.
Additionally, they serve as liaisons to multiple local, County and regional groups representing the Town. They are truly vested in the future of our community and share the same concerns as our residents do as related to traffic, growth, jobs, renewable water, public safety, housing and transportation issues, to name a few.
Councilmembers are paid an annual salary of $7,800. The Mayor Pro Tem earns $9,600, and the Mayor $11,400 annually.
Thank you, Council!
Councilmembers represent you and have the opportunity to impact the future of Castle Rock with the deliberations and decisions they make. They are dedicated citizens who made a choice to become involved in their community, and we appreciate their willingness to serve Castle Rock!
