    Jeffco Insights Wins National Award


    An introductory video about the county, which was created by Jeffco's Public Information staff in partnership with Arvada's staff, was submitted for an award and received honorable mention. During public comment at the February 15 BCC meeting, Rick Assmus from the city of Arvada presented to the commissioners an award for Jefferson County from a national association.

    Arvada's staff submitted several videos in the annual competition of NATOA (National Association of Telecommunication Officers and Advisors) in Washington D.C. An introductory video about the county, which was created by Jeffco's Public Information staff in partnership with Arvada's staff, was submitted for an award and received honorable mention. Arvada's KATV came in third place for "Station of the Year."

    In early 2010, Jefferson County, in partnership with the city of Arvada, launched a series of short online videos called "Jefferson County Insights." The goal of these videos is to help inform citizens about everything from how their tax bills are calculated to the importance of dog licensing. 

    Jefferson County Insights is part of a broader effort by Jefferson County to bring more information to citizens online. Since early 2009, video recordings of the Board of County Commissioners hearings have been posted on the Jeffco website along with the agendas, minutes and other supporting documents. Also online are Planning Commission meetings, videos of groundbreakings, news conferences and other community events.
