As public servants, we work in the public trust to ensure quality of life and experience in Pitkin County for present and future generations.
The Board of County Commissioners is the decision-making Board for Pitkin County. The Board provides necessary public service as required or authorized by Colorado State statutes, and establishes, evaluates, and revises County codes, policies and service programs to achieve operational efficiency in the use of limited public resources.
The Board of County Commissioners reviews and approves specific land-use issues such as special review, subdivision and planned unit development. In the fall of each year they also review and approve County, District and Authority service plans and budgets. The Commissioners also act as liaison to statewide groups and commissions and other local governments.
Commissioners represent specific residential districts in which they must reside during their terms but are elected at large.
The Commissioners meet twice a month in regular meetings and four to six additional days each month in work sessions. Regular meetings are scheduled the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month starting at 12:00 noon, except in November and December. Regular Meetings in November and December occur on the first and third Wednesdays due to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Work sessions are scheduled on Tuesdays and starting times may vary. All Commissioner meetings are open to the public unless specifically noted as Executive Sessions.
