Community Relations

The Community Relations department serves as a liaison between the community and county government. We strive to make our government as transparent as possible.

Communication Tools 


The tools we use to communicate are word of mouth, newspaper, radio, television, social media, press releases and public service announcements, our website, and more. We publish a weekly ad in the Monday edition of the Aspen Daily News that highlights our meeting agendas and other information relevant to the public. Follow Pitkin County on Facebook and search Facebook to find other county departments.

Community Government Television


Watch government meetings on CGTV Channel 11, Community Government Television, which is operated by GrassRoots TV. Regular Pitkin County Board of Commissioners meetings as well as Aspen City Council and Snowmass Village Town Council meetings are televised on CGTV and can be viewed anytime online. Access live-streamed and archived county meetings on YouTube.
