The Archuleta County Surveyor is an elected office historically legislated to provide clarity and weight to the location of county boundaries within Colorado. In modern times the County Surveyor position has developed into a more diverse role. Today, the Archuleta County Surveyor's office is available to the County Commissioners and Manager whenever they see a need for field or boundary surveys.

Although an elected position, the County Surveyor must be a registered Professional Land Surveyor within the State of Colorado. In addition this individual is usually well established within Archuleta County as a practicing surveyor. He or she is most likely familiar with state statues and county codes dealing with boundaries and land development, as well as particulars associated with specific areas within the county and their boundary issues or use development issues.
