Adams County Proposed Budget 2021

Adams County Schedule Change

Beginning Tuesday, June 2, Adams County will re-open county buildings with new safety measures in place, and it’s important to remember that Staying Safe and Staying Home are still paramount for you and for our staff.

The Treasurer and Public Trustee's Office will still be staffed at essential personnel only, and the building management will require that, IF you must come in, you will be masked and gloved (more). We do ask that you not come to the Treasurer and Public Trustee's Office without calling our office first to get an appointment – 720.523.6160.

We are working

We are working, and all payments are being processed each day that we receive them from the USPS.  Please pay with a check by mailing it (with your coupon, if possible), or go to to pay online, or you can drop it off at the building in our drop box or the ballot boxes listed on this site.  We are working to keep Adams County operating smoothly through this pandemic.  Thank you!

While the Government Center has reopened to the public, we are still in the midst of a public health crisis. COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Adams County. There are many ways residents can pay and/or manage their property tax payments without visiting the Treasurer and Public Trustee's Office:
