Important Information About the Government in Boulder, Colorado

The government in Boulder, Colorado, specifically, refers to the county seat of Boulder County. It remains the eleventh largest city in the state. The estimated population is 94,268 residents. The city is considered a Home Rule Municipality and is a self-governing system. Politically, Boulder, like most of Colorado, is predominantly a Democratic city. However, there are conservatives and Republican residents, particularly in the suburbs.

Historically speaking, the government of Boulder is often breaking ground in terms of granting civil rights. In the 1970s, Boulder passed the first ordinance prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation. For a time, Boulder was granting same-sex marriage licenses before the state intervened. Boulder was also the first city in the state to ban smoking in public bars.

The official location of the city office of Boulder is 1777 Broadway in Boulder, Colorado, 80302. Visiting the official website of the city will put you in contact with various city departments including the offices of the city attorney, the city clerk, the city council and the city manager, Jane S. Brautigam. There are also departments for city boards and commissions, Local Environmental Action Division LEAD and the revenue and sales tax department.

Area codes within Boulder are 303 and 720 and local calls require 10-digit dialing. City offices, as well as banks, are available at hours of 9 am to 5 am.

In the downtown area, parking can be problematic. This is why most streets have parking meters (about 25 cents per 20 minutes). Parking lots charge anywhere from $1 to $3 dollars for three hours. Outside of the downtown area, free parking is usually available. Do not take chances—check for signs before you park!
