Pursuant to CRS Section 30-15-405 and 406, county ordinances are typically adopted on first reading at a Board of County Commissioners business meeting. Subsequently, after notice has been provided in the newspaper, the Board of County Commissioners will adopt an ordinance at a second and final reading, which is conducted at a public hearing.
If adopted as an emergency ordinance, the ordinance will take effect immediately. Otherwise, all ordinances go into effect 30 days after publication after the second and final reading.
