Public Works Continuity of Services

  • Read Public Works Continuity of Service Update. Broomfield will not shut off water for delinquent bills through the closure, neither will Denver Water. 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. 
Financial Considerations

  • 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. 
  • Read Mayor Pat Quinn's statement on foreseeable impacts to the business community and economy from COVID-19.
