General Improvement Districts

A Bit About GIDs

General Improvement Districts (GIDs) are local taxing entities authorized by CRS 31-25-601, et seq. for the purpose of acquiring, constructing, installing, operating, or maintaining any public improvement or for the purpose of providing any service the municipality is authorized to perform.


The Walsenburg City Council acts as the governing body for the City's General Improvement Districts. The City Clerk acts as the Secretary for the GIDs and the City Treasurer as the GIDs Treasurer. (see CRS 31-25-609)
