Risk Management
What We Do  


  • Types of claims include workers compensation, property, liability, and automobile.
  • To file a claim notify the County department or employee nearest the site of the incident/accident. Then contact Risk Management at (970) 244-1868.
  • You need the following information to file a claim: who, what, when, where, and why. Who was involved? What happened? When did it occur? Where did it occur? And why did it occur, i.e. what were the circumstances?


  • Administer the County's self-insurance retention and policies for workers compensation, liability, and property insurance.
  • Review policies annually prior to renewal.
  • Prepare Requests for Proposals every 4 or 5 years to go out for insurance bids.


  • Review contracts and Requests for Proposals (RFPs) to ensure sufficient insurance is requested in contracts then provided on Certificates of Insurance (COIs), thereby protecting the County's interests. Contact Risk Management at (970) 244-1868 if you have any questions.
  • Minimum Insurance Requirements are as follows: Commercial General Liability, occurrence form, with minimum limits of $1 million combined single limit, per occurrence for bodily injury, personal injury, and property damage; Comprehensive Automobile Liability insurance with minimum limits for bodily injury and property damage of not less than $1 million combined single limit per accident.
