How to Apply for Boards and Commissions

Golden City Hall

The Golden City Council encourages citizen participation in municipal government and welcomes your interest in serving on a city board, commission, or committee.

Appointments to city boards and commissions are made by the Mayor, with a majority vote of council, following interviews. Terms on the boards and commissions all expire in April of the end of the appointed term.

Boards and Commissions generally require that members be a resident of the City of Golden. If you are uncertain whether or not your address is within city limits or a part of unincorporated Jefferson County (mailing address is not a good indicator) please check the Jefferson County Address Wizard. The information will be under ‘Municipal Status.’

The deadline to apply for all openings has passed. If you submitted an application, please save the date for interviews with City Council, which are scheduled for the evening of Thursday, April 4.

Interviews for those who applied for the Jefferson County Board of Corrections vacancy will occur with members of City Council between March 14 and 21.
