Government

The City of Alamosa, Alamosa County and The State of Colorado all offer residents and visitors a wide range of information regarding our area.

City of Alamosa

The City of Alamosa, a charter city, operates under the Council-Manager form of government. Under this system, the Council establishes the policies under which the City operates and appoints a trained and experienced City Manager to administer the affairs of the City.

Alamosa County

Additionally, the County Commissioners represent the County through State and local Boards. Alamosa County has three County Commissioners elected for four year staggered terms.

The County Commissioners are elected from three districts divided geographically and each County Commissioner must reside within the district they represent.
