Board of County Commissioners

Snowy Central CityMission Statement: 
The Commissioners and all employees provide responsive services for our residents and visitors to protect, maintain and enhance our unique community, our historic and cultural heritage and our mountain environment.  We focus on health, safety and well-being,  partnerships, community engagement, and effective use of public resources.

Responsibility:
Commissioners have the responsibility for running the administrative, budgetary and policy-making functions of the county as a whole.  The other constitutional officers in each county elected to four-year terms are the county clerk and recorder, county assessor, county treasurer, county sheriff, county coroner and the county surveyor.  Constitutionally and statutorily, they are independent from each other and from the county commissioners.  Their powers and duties are prescribed by state statue.  County commissioners have no direct authority over the other elected officials' departments.  

Taking into account the recent protests across our country regarding police actions against African American people over the years, accentuated by the death of George Floyd and the death of Elijah McClain in Aurora, Colorado, we, the County Commissioners of Gilpin County would like to take a moment to reaffirm our commitment to our community. We embrace all people in our county: black, brown, LGBTQ, those suffering from loss of income, poor health, food insecurity and general loneliness during this time in our history. Together, we can care for each other and make sure that no one falls between the cracks of racism, hatefulness or neglect.  We are here to serve this community of Gilpin County while we pledge our support to all citizens and reject the racism and hatred that afflicts our society.
