Dennis Gatlin

Position: Chair
Term: Term Expires May 2025 Board member since 2/21/08

Dennis Gatlin joined the board in 2008, a move that was in step with his long history in community service and his particular passion for public health and the supporting efforts to maintain the vitality of Northern Colorado’s people and places. He’s also an ethics consultant and an orchid-grower (with 400 in his care) so clean water and its uses are particularly in his wheelhouse.

Since joining more than a decade ago, Dennis has immersed himself in the complexities of water—from where it’s sourced, how it’s used and where it’s headed after it hits the drain. Spreading that awareness is one of the key issues he sees facing the District. To Dennis, engaging the community with information and resources on important topics is critical.

“I always encourage community members to learn more and even invite them to attend a future board meeting, if possible,” he says. “We actively listen to any comments and concerns and always heavily consider feedback from our community. We’re here to help our neighbors address needs however possible and always welcome the opportunity to engage with residents on ways we can best serve the community we all call home.”
