During the session CCI produces Fact Sheets to heighten awareness of legislative proposals. CCI’s County Lines and E County Lines address current hot topics, and various resources available to counties. CCI’s annual Colorado County Officials Directory provides a current listing of county contact information as well as specific data on each county. The County Commissioner Handbook is a comprehensive resource that describes the formal and legal roles county commissioners play in local government and the powers and duties they are authorized or obliged to exercise. The handbook is updated periodically to reflect recent statutory changes and is provided to all newly elected commissioners.
