On October 24, 2016, City Council passed Council Bill No. 24-2016 (Ordinance 1611) amending the Wheat Ridge Code of Laws to add a new section entitled Removal of Snow and Ice from Sidewalks. Under this new ordinance, sidewalks are the responsibility of the adjacent property owners.

City of Wheat Ridge Right of Way pothole repair is performed by the Public Works Operation Division. CDOT-Colorado Dept of Transportation maintains Sheridan, Wadsworth, Kipling and Ward Rd.
The homeowner is responsible for the repair and replacement of driveway culverts. The City cleans driveway culverts to provide proper storm drainage. To report a drainage problem call (303) 205-7615.
The first step in the process is to call the Engineering Division at (303) 235-2846 or email Engineering@ci.wheatridge.co.us. Engineering will evaluate the need for additional illumination. If it is determined that a street light is warranted, a petition form will be sent to you to obtain signatures from property owners who will be affected by the new light (This information will be provided to you.) Once the form is returned to Engineering, a cost estimate is requested from Xcel Energy. If the cost is acceptable and funds are available, payment will be made and Xcel will schedule installation.
