Colorado General Assembly and Governor Polis approve changes that will delay certification of the tax roll

The Colorado Legislature and Governor Polis recently enacted changes to laws to accommodate property tax relief, which will delay Colorado counties certifying their tax roll. The new tax roll deadline is January 24, 2024, which is two weeks later than previous years.  
This extra time will allow taxing authorities sufficient time to certify their mill levies
and county assessors more time to compile newly required data.

Defective COVID-19 Tests

To All Gilpin County Residents:

This past October, Gilpin County Public Health offered free COVID-19 tests to community members to help prevent the spread of COVID in the county. 

It has just come to our attention that these tests were unfortunately shipped to us containing low buffer fluid levels, and therefore are defective. 

All Clinitest Rapid COVID -19 Antigen Self Tests with the lot number 2201838EUA should be promptly disposed of, as they will not effectively detect COVID-19.
