Municipal Code

Denver Charter

The document that establishes Denver as an incorporated political entity and provides for fundamental authorities, powers, offices, agencies, and direction in its operation. This is similar to the relationships between the State of Colorado and the United States of America and their respective constitutions. That Denver is governed by a mayor and council, that they are elected, and when and how they are elected, for example, are established by the Charter. The Charter can be amended only by approval of Denver electors.
