Pursuant to HB 19-1295, Commencing July 1, 2020 the county treasurer for each Class 2 county (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Douglas, El Paso, Jefferson, Larimer, Mesa, Pueblo and Weld) will serve as the public trustee for the county. See the Treasurer’s website.
Effective June 1, Jefferson County Offices will reopen to the public. Please contact departments and offices directly to see if they provide services online and/or are open by appointment only. We strongly encourage wearing a face covering while visiting any county facility.
Also beginning June 1, most Jefferson County offices will be switching to a four-day business week and will be closed on Fridays. However, offices such as those related to courts and law enforcement will not be switching to this schedule. Please contact departments and offices directly for their hours of operation.
If you have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 Crisis please contact your lender’s Loss Mitigation Department regarding forbearance, loan modification or other programs that they may have available to help you avoid foreclosure.
