Utility Rate Citizen Committee @ Public Works and Planning Building
Mar 19 @ 6:00 pm

The City of Golden Public Works Department is conducting a rate study for our water, sewer and stormwater (drainage) services in 2019. We are looking at how customers are charged for water, sewer and stormwater services, and the amount we charge for service.

The last rate study was completed more than 20 years ago and much has changed since that time, including water use habits, average demand and peak day needs, available technology and switching to monthly billing to name a few. Given these changes, the study will help us evaluate pricing objectives such as revenue stability, conservation and affordability to ensure we can support our high-quality water, sewer and stormwater services well into the future.

The Utility Rate Citizen Committee was formed to look into these issues and present a recommendation to City Council later this summer. The group first met on February 19 and will meet on the third Tuesday of the month through July at 6 p.m. in the Public Works / Planning Building, 1445 10th Street.

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day 2019 @ Golden City Hall
Apr 27 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

National Drug Take Back 2019On Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Golden Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give you the opportunity to get rid of expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. By getting rid of these types of potentially dangerous drugs, you can prevent pill abuse and theft. Bring your pills for disposal (the DEA cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills or patches) to the Golden Police Department at 911 10th St, Golden, CO.  The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines (flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash) both pose potential safety and health hazards.

COG Mesa

 Golden was named after Thomas L. Golden,
a gold prospector who arrived in Jefferson County in 1858.
