According to a press release from the county commissioners, Weld County has been recognized with two national awards from the National Association of County Information Officers.

Weld County was issued an award for their Discover Weld website and the Weld County Facebook page. The Discover Weld site went up in the spring of 2013 and is a great source of information about the county, including events and sites to see. The Weld County Facebook page was a key vehicle in getting information out to the community during the floods.

There were nearly four-hundred competitors across the country vying for these awards. The board of commissioners have put a great effort into constantly improving communications with the residents of the county and their efforts have not gone unnoticed.
