Keeping you in the know
In 2015, Castle Rock voters approved a measure that changed the way the Town publishes public notices for both proposed and adopted ordinances. Official notice will now be, here, on the Town's website.
What is an ordinance?
In Castle Rock, Town Council makes local laws by ordinance. Typically, an ordinance must be considered and approved by the Town Council at two Council meetings in order to take effect on a specified date. Public comment is always taken at the first consideration, referred to as a "reading." The date in the public notice of the proposed ordinance is the date of this first reading before the Town Council.
The Town of Castle Rock values transparency in government. Prior to an ordinance going before Town Council, a public notice is required to be published. These public notices allow our residents to be informed of when ordinances will be heard before Council.
Public notice and comment
Public notices for ordinances are specifically related to Town Council action. Notices for public hearings presented before other Town boards and commissions, including the Planning commission are also published on our website.
Public comment is allowed during the advertised public hearing section of the Council agenda and during specified times at other public meetings.
Public notices for the first reading of a proposed ordinance scheduled to be heard before Town Council are posted by noon the Thursday prior to the Council meeting. Ordinances adopted by Council are published on the website within five days of final action.
