Public Trustee
Welcome to the Public Trustee Office  

Public Trustee foreclosure auctions are held every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. at 544 Rood Avenue, 2nd Floor, Public Hearing Room, Grand Junction, Colorado.

Public Trustee's Proposed 2015 Budget

The operations of the Public Trustee office are not funded by county tax dollars or state tax dollars.  Instead, the salaries of the Public Trustee and staff, the rent the office pays to the county, and other costs are funded by statutorily-defined fees for specific services provided by the Public Trustee office (see list of statutorily-defined fees).  The Public Trustee cut expenses significantly in 2014, and proposes further reductions in expenses for 2015.  While using no county tax dollars and while covering its own expenses, the Public Trustee office gave the county thousands of dollars in 2014, and anticipates being able to give the county substantial funds in 2015 as well.

A public hearing for the Public Trustee to receive comments on the proposed 2015 budget for the Public Trustee office will be held on Wednesday, December 10, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. in the Public Hearing Room at 544 Rood Avenue, Grand Junction, Colorado.  Written comments may also be offered by e-mail sent to until that time.

You may access the proposed 2015 Public Trustee budget here, along with the 2015 Budget Message.


Notice to Owner in Foreclosure:

If your property goes to foreclosure auction sale and is purchased for more than the total owed to the lender and to all other lien holders, please contact the public trustee's office after the sale because you may have funds due to you.

Help for Homeowners:  Colorado Foreclosure Hotline

Before a property goes to sale, the foreclosure can be cured by bringing the payments current, if the reason for the default was failure to pay according to the promissory note. A Notice of Intent to Cure must be filed with the Public Trustee's Office (there is no cost to file) at least 15 days before the sale is scheduled. The amount necessary to cure a foreclosure is determined by the lender. The money must be received by the Public Trustee's Office by noon the day before the sale.
