Medium – The County is able hire additional employees to meet the needs of residents, but ultimately has little control over the rate of population growth in Arapahoe County or the availability of funds to hire additional employees.

Arapahoe County is growing rapidly, increasing the demand for County services. From 2021 to 2022, the ratio of employees to residents increased from 3.51 to 3.59. This growth was anticipated due to increases in demand for County services. Another increase is anticipated for the next reporting period as the County opened its own Public Health Department in January of 2023.
