Message from Saguache County Commissioners on COVID-19


Neighbors & Constituents

There is no true way to alleviate both the anxiety and uncertainty that we find ourselves in. We, as your local government, are asking the same questions as you. We find ourselves considering and taking drastic measures that we never anticipated, and as we

do so, we want to reach out to all the families, individuals, businesses and organizations in the county, from Center to Villa Grove, to let you know that we share your concerns and your fears. The current spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic impacts are unprecedented in our time. As of this writing we have confirmation of the virus in four of our neighboring counties, and conservative thinking would conclude that it exists in our county as well.

Saguache County Commissioners Home Page

The county is an administrative unit of the Colorado state government wherein the commissioners work with the various state agencies and the Governor's office. Since the state statutes define the scope and limit of county authority, the commissioners suggest, support, and oppose legislation depending on the needs and interests of Saguache County.


 The commissioners are directly responsible for the following departments: Road & Bridge, Social Services, Public Health, Land Use, and General Administration. The Elected officials (Sheriff, Assessor, Treasurer, County Clerk and Coroner) are responsible for their departments, however, the commissioners have authority over their budgets.

 The commissioners also have final authority on all land use and land planning concerns, utilizing the recommendations of the planning commission. They also appoint citizens to various boards, committees and councils to advise in the running of the county

Meeting twice a month, on the first and third Tuesday, the commissioners are available to work with Saguache County residents on decisions that affect their lifestyle, livelihood or finances. At other times of the year, especially during the annual budget preparation, the commissioners will schedule additional meetings to meet the needs of the business at hand. The commissioners are open to phone calls, visits and letters from concerned residents of Saguache County.
