Welcome to Akron!

The Town of Akron is an equal opportunity provider and employer


From its beginning as a frontier town on the prairie to currently being one of the largest agricultural producing areas in Colorado, Akron has been a thriving community.

Akron is located on the High Plains of Colorado, 115 miles northeast of Denver. The county seat of Washington County, the Town celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2007.  Check out more about our history under the Community tab on our web site.



Check out our on-line bill pay capability.  We  accept credit card payments for utility bills, court fines, building permits, and much more.  To pay your utility bill on-line, click on the link at the top of this page.  For other payments, call the Town Hall at 345-2624 and we will process your payment for you.


Are you planning a special event - a birthday party, anniversary celebration, family or class reunion, garage sale, club meeting, or Bible Study?  Why not save yourself the stress of cleaning and preparing your own home, and host your event at the Akron Senior and Community Center instead?

The Center is available to anyone, regardless of age, and rates can't be beat.  Depending on amount of time needed, rentals range from $25 to $45.  Call 345-6391 for more information.  The Center is open every weekday morning, but leave a voice mail message if no one answers, and your call will be answered promptly.
