Section 5.8 of the Arvada Home Rule Charter provides for the publication of certain ordinances in full following first reading and by title only following second reading. The Arvada City Code and specific provisions within the Colorado Revised Statutes also provide for the publication of other legal notices.
The Arvada City Council adopted an ordinance in 2006 designating the Wheat Ridge Transcript and Arvada Press as the official newspapers for the City of Arvada for purposes of publishing all ordinances and legal notices. In addition, the ordinance provides that the publication shall reference the assigned number and title of ordinances and that the full text of the ordinances and/or legal notices shall be available in electronic form on the City’s official website or in printed form in the City Clerk’s office. The newspaper’s legal notice is also required to include the City’s website address and a contact phone number.
The City’s legal notices are published every Thursday by title only in the Wheat Ridge Transcript and Arvada Press and published here in full every Thursday. Current week and previous week notices are available using the links provided. If you would like to find an older notice, please contact the City Clerk's office at 720-898-7550.
