Nederland Municipal Code, Section 2:21, describes the Board of Trustees:
“The legislative and corporate authority of the Town shall be vested in a Board of Trustees, consisting of one (1) Mayor and six (6) Trustees. The Board of Trustees shall constitute the legislative body of the Town and shall have the power and authority, except as otherwise provided by statute, to exercise all power conferred upon or possessed by the Town, and shall have the power and authority to adopt such laws, ordinances and resolutions as it shall deem proper in the exercise thereof.”
The Town of Nederland is a statutory town, which means it is governed by the State Statutes of Colorado. This mainly affects Nederland when it comes to which types of new ordinances the Town may enact.
