An Act of the Colorado General Assembly created Washington County, named for George Washington, on February 9th, 1887. Washington County ranks 12th largest of the 64 Colorado counties with a total of 2524 square miles. The 2015 population was 4,814 averaging over 320 acres for every man, woman and child. There are 5 school districts in Washco: Akron, Arickaree, Lone Star, Otis and Woodlin. Most of the land is dedicated to farming and ranching.

Report Road Issues Contacts
Washington County Commissioners and the three county road supervisors have received a lot of
comment and input on county road issues this winter, as we should. There have been many phone calls
and messages relayed to the road supervisors. With all this in mind, we have an idea to simplify or
streamline some of this communication. Our county IT department has added three dedicated email
addresses for county residents to report issues; and the real easy part is you can text your road report
directly from your cell phone to the email.
It's just this easy. Take a photo of the road issue and send it with the road location (on County Road ??,
about ¼ mile east of County Road ??). Add a brief description of the road damage/issue if the photo
does not totally capture the necessary information. If you have a suggestion of how to remedy a specific
issue, please add that, too.
The road supervisors will be able to evaluate and prioritize the issues; and then schedule the necessary
repairs and materials in their work flow.
