A public hearing is a formal review process for a land use application that is quasi-judicial in nature. This means the Planning Commission and Town Council is required to review the application and all evidence, including public comments, for the case in a public setting / meeting.
If you would like to voice your concern, support, or opposition to an active land use case, it must be done in a public hearing and/or formally submitted for the record.

Each year, the Town Council holds a goal setting retreat with the Town Manager and Department Heads. Together, they identify goals for the future, projects needed to meet these goals, and changes in service levels. Council goals form the basis for the budget.
At the End of June: The Finance Department kicks off the budget process, providing all relevant Town staff with the budget calendar and preparation guide, which ensures consistency between departments.
By August: Budget narratives are submitted by each department highlighting goals, objectives, staffing levels, capital purchases, and significant budget changes. The Finance Department prepares revenue projects.
In the Middle of September: All funds of the Town budget are presented to the Financial Advisory Board. The board reviews each department and division budget and supplemental funds.
In the first half of October: The budget process moves to Town Council work sessions. During this process, additional projects or expenditures are identified, prioritized, and voted on for inclusion into the budget. Following this session, department and division heads make final reviews. All final numbers are made part of the budget resolution. A public hearing is held on the budget and mill levy certification. The Town certifies the mill levy to the Pitkin County Commissioners prior to December 15.

If you are involved in an accident you should:
The Town is responsible for plowing 39 miles of roadway. When the snow starts falling, time is of the essence to clear roadways and make them as safe as possible. In the process, snow plows leave a windrow of snow on the side of the plow and in front of driveways. This is not intentionally done by the snow plow drivers and is unavoidable. In most cases, the windrow is in the Town’s right-of-way and it is too costly and time consuming for the Town to remove it from all driveways.
We ask that homeowners pitch in and not plow the windrow back on the roadway because this creates a traffic hazard.
As early as 2000 a roundabout was deemed as the best option to maintain the character of the community but also meet increasing multi-modal transportation demands with an acceptable level of service. The technical details of the roundabout’s design have continued to evolve since 2004, but the ultimate goal to install a safe intersection for both pedestrian and vehicular traffic, and provide a welcoming statement to the community while working within the existing design constraints remains.
Upper Brush Creek Road, above the intersection, will be closed during phase 3 of the project, but it will be re-opened by mid-August. A detour will always be available, via Carriage Way.
We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for you patience.
