For boilers, do I need State of Colorado as well as City and County of Broomfield permit and inspections?
The installation, replacement or alteration of all boilers and water heaters in the City and County of Broomfield requires a Broomfield permit and inspection. Due to the fact that boilers can explode, causing property damage, injuries and deaths, the State of Colorado Division of Oil and Public Safety requires permits and inspections for the following:

Low-pressure steam boilers with no more than 15 psi and/or less than 250 degrees F;

Hydronic (water) boilers with no more than 160 psi and or less than 250 degrees F;

High-pressure steam boilers with more than 15 psi and/or more than 250 degrees F; and

Hydronic (water) boilers with more than 160 psi and/or more than 250 degrees F.

Water heaters are also treated as low-pressure boilers for inspection purposes if the heat input is more than 200,000 BTU/Hr, the water temperature exceeds 210 degrees F, or the nominal water-containing capacity is greater than 120 gallons.

Locations likely to have boilers also needing State of Colorado permits and inspections include offices, schools, apartment buildings providing hot water supply and/or heat, utilities, processing plants, drill rig sites, commercial laundries, dry cleaners and hospitals. Please see the State of Colorado Boiler Inspection website for complete information. (http://www.colorado.gov/cs/Satellite/CDLE-OilPublicSafety/CDLE/1248095303782)
