2019 Citizen’s Academy Applications Open!

The Aspen Citizens Academy is a community program designed to inform and empower residents to understand the answers to questions like those above and participate in informed solution-making. Over eleven class sessions, participants will meet City staff, learn about the many functions of the City, and discuss topics learned with fellow classmates. This is a great opportunity to connect with fellow community members, engage deeply in local issues, get to know the people who work in the organization serving the community, and have a better, more thorough understanding of how Aspen works.  Applications are due June 26th.


Aspen City Council recently approved a new project to upgrade the City’s entire metering system, which will modernize the utility’s technology and infrastructure.

The project is called AIM, which stands for Aspen Intelligent Metering.
Intelligent meters are digital devices that read your water and electric consumption and securely communicates that data to Aspen’s utility. Intelligent meters offer same day usage readings and provide more accurate data for billing.

The AIM project requires new electric meter installation for all customers, with technology upgrades for water meters, replacing them only when the current meter is not AIM compatible. Customers will be contacted prior to meter upgrades. Brief coordinated disruption of water and electric service will occur during installation, electric meter installations are projected to begin late fall 2019 and water meters in 2020. Once the system is fully online, customers will be able to upload a portal to view and track usage, among other applications.

To learn more about AIM’s benefits like: accuracy, reliability, convenience, efficiency, environmental and affordability, please visit: email: or phone 970.920.5110
