Citizens First was established in 2009 as a civic association to support the community of Berthoud, Colorado.
Citizens First hosts public information forums to educate our citizens on topics of interest in our town, particularly in regards to local government, elections and events. Funds raised to support Citizens First are used to pay for facilities and advertising for public forums and to support local charities that benefit the citizens of Berthoud.

CITIZENS FIRST Areas of interest
Clean Water – Clean, good tasting and affordable water.
Healthy Trees – We support protecting and nurturing our trees.
