City Clerk

The City of Wheat Ridge Responds to COVID-19:

While City facilities remain closed due to the potential risks posed by COVID-19, please know we are doing everything we can to continue to provide the essential services you rely on from your City Clerk.

We have made some changes to our processes to enable access on our website and we are also available by phone if you have questions during regular business hours between 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday –Friday.

One of the significant changes we’ve made is the fulfillment of CORA requests as follows:

CORA requires that the City provide the documents cited in your CORA request within three business days or in the case of extenuating circumstances, 10 business days. 

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency, extenuating circumstances do exist and the City Clerk’s office may need up to 10 business days to respond to CORA requests. 

Whenever practical, the City Clerk’s office strives to send CORA documents within three business days of the request. However during the current National State of Emergency (declared by the President), and the Colorado State of Emergency (declared by the Governor), like many municipal governments across the state and the country, our City Hall is currently closed to the public. This means many of our city staff are working remotely which makes many documents inaccessible and the process of compiling them more time consuming. 

Please be assured we will do everything we can, and in compliance with the states of emergency, to fulfill your CORA request at the earliest possible date. Your understanding and patience is very much appreciated. 

I encourage all of our residents, business owners and visitors to take the appropriate precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones from this potentially deadly virus while also remembering to take some time to do those things that bring you joy as a way to balance all the “bad news” with a sense of well being.

 Take good care,

Steve Kirkpatrick, City Clerk

Many public documents are readily available online. Find roofing permits, look up residential plans, inspections, certificates of occupancy, etc. on the Community Development/Building Division page.

"No other office in municipal service has so many contacts. It serves the mayor, the city council, the city manager, and all administrative departments without exception. All of them call upon it, almost daily, for some service or information. Its work is not spectacular, but it demands versatility, alertness, accuracy, and no end of patience. The public does not realize how many loose ends of city administration this office pulls together." ~ William Bennitt Munro, eminent political scientist.
