Additionally, Xcel Energy will not disconnect any residential electric or natural gas service due to the challenges people face as the coronavirus spreads throughout the country.
Broomfield is monitoring the economic impact of COVID-19 closely and assessing daily based on economic forecasting and extended or new closures. The staff is actively reviewing expenditures and revenues to address financial needs; postponing new hires except for critical positions; limiting discretionary spending, and reviewing Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) to potentially postpone projects until revenues recover.
Broomfield Library will continue book delivery service twice a week to support our neighbors who are isolating at home and to help with social distancing efforts. All books are disinfected before delivering.
