Colfax is a "strong-mayor/council" type government. The city is led by a Mayor, full-time City Administrator and a seven member council. The council meets twice a month, on the first and third Mondays, at 7 p.m. The council chamber is located in City Hall at N. 400 Mill Street. The entrance is on the north side of the building in the city/county parking lot.
“Colfax is a great place to live, and I can’t get over the view of the hills any time of the year! This truly is an amazing place with great people.” -Steve Bretveld, City Councilman
