The Board of Pueblo County Commissioners is elected by voters to represent three individual districts within Pueblo County. The board serves as the administrative and policy-setting authority of Pueblo County and provides services outlined in the Constitution of the State of Colorado, including approving an annual balanced budget, overseeing the provision of government services, land use management, engineering/public works, roads and bridges, housing and human services, veterans, and social services.
The Sheriff’s Office mission is three fold. The agency is responsible for law enforcement, detention of criminal offenders, and all-hazards emergency management in Pueblo County. The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office, under the guidance of Sheriff Kirk M Taylor, focuses its effort on accomplishing their mission with the highest level of safety, security, and respect for both citizens and guests of Pueblo County.
What Does the District Attorney Do?
Most people know that the District Attorney's Office prosecutes cases against criminals. What not as many people know is that the District Attorney's Office has several other roles as well.
The District Attorney's Office can only work on criminal cases that could result in punishments like fines or sending the defendant to jail. Civil cases such as personal injury, property disputes or contractual issues must be handled by private attorneys.
The Treasurer's Office is responsible for the collection of all real estate, personal property, manufactured housing and state assessed taxes. We are located on the first floor of the County Courthouse, at 215 W. 10th St, Pueblo, CO 81003.
The Pueblo County Surveyor is responsible for reviewing plats deposited by private surveyors and maintaining them on file. The surveyor also investigates boundary disputes and road rights-of-way.
The office also is responsible for surveying county-owned properties when a need arises.
The District Attorney's office represents the People's interests in prosecuting criminal cases, seeking justice for victims, and advocating measures to reduce criminal behavior in our community. (Civil cases do not normally involve the DA's office unless there is evidence of criminal activity, such as fraud or extortion.)
The Pueblo County Coroner's Office is headed by James Kramer MPAS, PA-C Diplomat of the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigation. He has been Coroner since November 1977.
The Clerk and Recorder is responsible for recording deeds, registering automobiles, issuing marriage licenses, registering voters, administering elections and maintaining records for the Board. The Clerk and Recorder's Office is made up of several divisions, which includes Motor Vehicle, Elections, Recording, Liquor Licensing and Clerk to the Board.
