The Arvada City Council is comprised of seven directly elected citizens.
- Mayor: represents the entire City of Arvada, presides over City Council Meetings and performs official duties
- Councilmember At-Large: two individuals who represent the entire City of Arvada
- District Councilmembers: four individuals, each residing within and representing the citizens of their specific District as indicated on the City Council District Map
The Mayor and City Councilmembers are elected to four-year terms. Elections are held in November of odd-numbered years (2015, 2017, etc). Terms are staggered so that the seats for District #1, District #3 and one At-Large seat are elected in one election cycle; and District #2, District #4, the Mayor's seat and one At-Large seat in the next election cycle. Councilmembers are limited to three (3) four-year terms for a specific seat. An individual elected to represent a specific district can serve in that capacity for three terms but then would have the option of running for an At-Large seat and serving an additional three terms.
