Is the Town responsible for all public services within Town boundaries?

No. The Town is a full-service municipality, offering police, fire and rescue, parks and recreation, water, building/planning/zoning, and roads/public works services to the community. However, other public entities work within Castle Rock, too. For example, Douglas County provides social, correctional and other services; CDOT maintains traffic signals on and near state highways; and the Douglas County School District is responsible for oversight of local schools. There’s even a separate cemetery district. Waste removal, meanwhile, generally is handled privately, or by a homeowners’ association.
