County Commissioners

userway ADA
The county commissioners act as the governing body of the county. They are elected at large to four year terms, and enact policies such as the establishment of the property tax rate and the adoption of the budget. They adopt ordinances or local laws that affect citizens living in unincorporated Eagle County.

The commissioners meet every Monday and Tuesday, with the exception of legal holidays and regularly-scheduled, off-site conferences, in the Eagle County Room at 500 Broadway in Eagle.

All commission meetings are open to the public with the exception of executive sessions, and public comment is taken during the Tuesday session. Comments may be limited to items listed on the agenda. BoCC meetings (and much more) are televised in HD on Comcast channel 18 in the Vail/Eagle valley, Comcast channel 19 in the Roaring Fork Valley, and streamed live at www.ecgtv.com, where all meetings are also available to watch on-demand anytime.

District 1

(970) 328-8625

Matt has been commissioner for Eagle County District 1 since February 2019. He brings a vision for the role of government in reflecting and realizing our shared values as a community. This vision is a result of his past work in the nonprofit sector, service on nonprofit and local government boards and committees, and time on the Minturn town council, including as mayor. Living in Eagle County gives Matt a keen awareness of the need to address the climate crisis and to preserve our environment and natural resources. He also believes those solutions are just part of enabling the elements of a vibrant economy, including a healthy and mobile workforce, exceptional public education, access to quality childcare, adequate housing, economic enhancement and diversification, and work opportunities at the scale of our cost of living. As commissioner, Matt represents Eagle County on regional transit solutions through the I-70 Coalition and other organizations, and on climate issues as the current president of Colorado Communities for Climate Action. Matt still shares a passion for life and community in Minturn with his wife Diana and their two kids.

Commissioner Districts

In December of 2021, the county commissioners approved new commissioner districts through Resolution R21-104. State statute requires the periodic revision of commissioner districts based on federal census numbers to ensure that districts are as nearly equal in population as possible. A map and legal description of the redrawn districts is included with the resolution, and a detailed commissioner district boundaries map may be accessed at the link below.

Commissioners are elected at large for four-year staggered terms, though each must live in the geographic district for which he/she is running. Eagle County commissioners are limited to serving three four-year terms.

A map of commissioner districts can be found on the GIS Map Viewer. Various search and detail options are available once you're on the viewer.
