City Attorney 

Sitting at an elevation of nearly 5,000 feet with panoramic views of the snow-capped Rocky Mountains and fertile plains, Loveland (pop. 73,000, 35.32 sq. mi.) is the jewel of Northern Colorado. The city has all the amenities of an urban population center, yet it still has small-town charm, friendliness, and a welcoming atmosphere. Located in southeast Larimer County approximately 46 miles north of Denver on the 1-25 corridor, Loveland has enjoyed a steady annual population growth of approximately two percent over many years. The Valentine re-mailing program (to get the Loveland postmark!) is one reason the city is affectionately known as America's "Sweetheart City." Named one of America's best places to live by Money and US News and World Report, it is known for its unique blend of nature, arts, and history 
As a gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, Loveland offers a variety of both indoor and outdoor activities enjoyable in every season.

The 2018 General Fund budget is $91.7 million, supporting approximately 755 employees.  The City Council's 2018 priorities are: Citizen Engagement, Utilities and Transportation, Economic Vitality, Public Safety, Quality of Life, Capacity, and Organization Excellence, Efficiency, and Improvement.  Loveland's next City Attorney will be a visionary, dynamic, and confident leader, and an effective manager, with strong organizational skills. The ideal candidate has the ability to delegate to, and to maximize the potential of, all attorneys and staff in the office – a mentor, coach, and motivator.  The successful candidate must be politically astute, but apolitical, with strong situational awareness. She or he is thick-skinned and strong, capable of defending her or his legal opinion, especially in the face of pressure or challenge.  Strong interpersonal skills are essential.

The salary for this position is $145,000 to $170,000, depending on experience and qualifications, plus relocation assistance subject to negotiation.
