Jane S. Brautigam

City Manager

Jane S. Brautigam was appointed city manager in October 2008 and is the city's first female manager in its 90-year history.

Before joining the City of Boulder, Brautigam was city manager for Dublin, Ohio (2002-2008). Previously she worked as the city manager (2000-2002) and city attorney (1996-2000) for Loveland, Colo.; the city attorney (1988-1995) and assistant city attorney (1985-1988) for Greenwood Village, Colo.; and as assistant county attorney for Boulder County (1983-1985).

Brautigam earned a Bachelor of Arts in History from Allegheny College and a law degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

The city manager manages the day-to-day business of the city government, sets strategic direction to achieve the city's community sustainability goals, implements council determined policies, coordinates community issues between department, and supervises the work of departments.

The city manager receives a very large volume of e-mails daily and each one is very important to her. Due to the nature of her schedule, please keep in mind that you may not receive an immediate response.  Thank you!
