How to Apply for Boards and Commissions

Apply for Boards and CommissionsThe 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 is 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 11. Please also save the date for interviews with City Council, which are scheduled for the evening of Thursday, April 2.

For questions, contact the City Clerk’s office at 303-384-8014, 303-384-8015, or clerks@cityofgolden.net.
