Open government is the political doctrine which holds that the business of government and state administration should be opened at all levels to effective public scrutiny and oversight. In Colorado, open government is guided to a large degree by the Colorado Open Records Act, which was enacted in 1969. Public meetings in Colorado are guided by the Colorado Sunshine Law.
County residents and taxpayers have the right to be able to adequately gauge whether their county government is effective, competent, frugal with tax revenues, and in compliance with all expectations and relevant laws about public records and open meetings. On this page, you will find documents that may be of interest to you as a Boulder County taxpayer or other interested community members.
The Boulder County Housing Authority Board meets bi-monthly. Agendas and meeting packets are posted on this page prior to meetings, and past and upcoming meetings can be viewed on the county’s Public Meetings, Hearings, Records & Video Archives page.
Boulder County Housing and Human Services helps distribute funding annually from the Human Services Safety Net (HSSN) initiative, passed by voters in 2010 and approved by them in 2014 through the year 2030 to help fill critical gaps in health, housing, and human services supports during times of uncertainty.
