Special Districts

SPECIAL DISTRICTS
Property owners reside in a number of special districts for which they are taxed. These are listed on the property tax notice and may also be obtained from the County Assessor's office (303-271 8666) by giving name and address or a legal description of the property.

Website: jeffco.us

There are six main types of Special Districts in Jefferson County: water, sanitation, water and sanitation, fire protection, park and recreation, and metropolitan. A Board of Directors is elected to staggered four-year terms to manage the affairs of the district. This Board has quasi-municipal powers in the area for which the district was created, i.e., it determines policy and sets the mill levy (if applicable) or fees for the specific purpose of the district.

To vote in special District Elections, persons must be qualified to vote in general elections in Colorado and be: a) a resident of the special district for 30 days, or b) a person who or whose spouse owns taxable real or personal property in the district.

For additional information concerning Special Districts
call the State of Colorado, Division of Local Government (303-866-2156)
or your special district office.
