Building considers the construction of the building. Environmental Health reviews septic system design. Wildlife Conservation determines if the disturbance is in Sage-grouse habitat. Public Works manages reclamation and driveways.
Plumbers and electricians are required by the State of Colorado to be licensed, but building contractors are not required to have a contractor's license.
