The Community Relations Officer also works to engage the public in civic dialogue, which goes beyond the standard City Council meeting. A goal of this department is to engage the community in unique ways -- such as keypad voting, focus groups and neighborhood meetings -- to deal with controversial and difficult issues.
In addition, Community Relations works with Aspen Sister Cities and the Mountain Partnership.
The community is encouraged to send comments, requests and questions for City Council to the Community Relations Office. Other questions, comments and requests concerning the City of Aspen and the community are also welcomed by this department.
