Why Wheat Ridge?

As a relatively small City, we work collaboratively City-wide to tackle our strategic priorities. We care about one another and it shows. City leadership is committed to taking care of employees through a combination of an excellent benefits package, a robust wellness program, employee appreciation events, and simply listening to employees. A benefit to working for our City is that we’re small enough to be agile and make change happen.

Thank you
