Accessing Records & Information
Committed to Transparency
The Town of Snowmass Village is committed to providing the public convenient access to accurate information about Town operations. A wide variety of commonly requested documents are available on this website, through the following tools:
- Public Records Portal: Our online historical public record repository which includes Town Council agendas, minutes, packets, resolutions, and ordinances dating back to 1977.
- Public Notices: Announcing upcoming meetings or public hearings. Please note that while many public notices are available on our website, the town's official public noticing location is the bulletin board at Snowmass Village Town Hall.
- Town Meeting Media Center: Features recordings on current and past Town Council meetings, as well as agendas, minutes, and packets for all Town Boards and Commissions.
- Document Center: Features town documents organized by topic or department. These include promotional forms and flyers, downloadable forms, strategic plans, community development materials, and more.
