Application Period Has Closed

Thank you all who submitted an application! The application period has now closed. If you submitted an application, please save the date for interviews with City Council, which are scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, April 13.

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. Citizens who serve on boards and commissions help shape initiatives for the City and build a great place for people to live and visit.

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 Friday, March 12. Please also save the date for interviews with City Council, which are scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, April 13.

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

Councilors Haseman and Trout are also available to speak with citizens about the various boards and commissions openings and answer to questions.
