Reduced Fee Program

About the Program
The Town of Wellington has established guidelines to make programs available to permanent residents who have a demonstrated financial need. The Town defines a permanent resident as someone who resides year round in Town of Wellington town limits and supports himself/herself financially. Applicants 18 years of age or older must show proof of lawful presence in the United States, as required by Colorado law. However, parents who are applying for a fee waiver only on behalf of their children who are under 18 years old are not required to prove their own lawful status or sign the affidavit.
