Board Member Handbook

Thank You!

Dear Board Member,
Thank you for taking the time to volunteer to serve the citizens of Colorado City on a citizen board. Your willingness to donate your time and energy are appreciated by City elected officials, City Staff, and citizens. As a volunteer board member, you are to be congratulated for your desire to help others. Many people only wish they could make this a better community, but you have taken the step to turn wishes into action. 

Your responsibility is to conduct the people's business in an open, mindful, and fair manner by listening to all parties interested in the issue before you and making good decisions that serve the community. 

The issues and personalities involved in doing the people's business are complex and challenging. Don’t let frustrations get you down as you serve on this board. Your commitment however can help you through any difficult times. A committed board is essential to the success of the organization. With your commitment, we will make a real difference in the lives of the people we serve in Colorado City.
