The Constitution and state laws of Colorado established real and business personal property assessment procedures and requirements. The values determined by the Assessor Department for real and personal property are used in the calculation of property tax bills. The revenue raised through these property taxes is used to help pay for all public services including schools, police, libraries, and fire protection.
For residential properties, the Assessor Department appraisers study the sales of homes similar to yours which sold within a specific 24-month period. For commercial and industrial properties, the cost, market, and income approaches are considered while business personal property values are based on the asset information submitted directly by business owners.
To obtain value information along with other data on a property, click on the Property Search Links on the Assessor webpage. The simplest search is the Property Records Search (EagleWeb). Click on that link and when the EagleWeb homepage pops up, press the 'Enter EagleWeb' tab ONCE and wait.
Under the Situs Address bar, enter your HOUSE NUMBER only (especially for residential, less is more) and press enter. Select from the search results.
The Assessment Department does not set property taxes or collect payments. However, we can provide the following general information about how your most recent property tax bill (2022 taxes payable in 2023) was calculated and how to estimate taxes.
To calculate taxes, Actual Value is adjusted by the appropriate Assessment Rate to determine its Assessed Value. Commercial properties are multiplied by 29% (0.2900), single-unit residential properties are multiplied by 6.95% (0.0695) and apartments are multiplied by 6.80% (0.068).
The Assessed Value (less any exempted amount) is next multiplied by the applicable Tax Rate, sometimes referred to as Mill Levy. In Colorado, tax rates are expressed as a decimal fraction of a dollar for every one dollar of Assessed Value. Known as a mill, one mill is 1/1,000th of a dollar or $0.001 (1/10th of a penny) and is usually written as a whole number followed by 3 digits to the right of a decimal point.
In 2022, the combined mill levy in the Broadlands area of Broomfield is 122.872 mills or a tax rate of 0.122872 for every $1 of assessed value. Using a home value of $530,000, here is a property tax calculation:
Actual Value x Assessment Rate x Mill Levy (Tax Rate) = Taxes
$530,000 x 0.0695 x 0.122872 = $4,525.99
As shown above, the tax calculation has 3 parts. The Actual Value comes from the Assessor and is show on the NOV mentioned above, Assessment Rates can be set annually by the State Legislature. Tax Rates are set in December each year by taxing authorities like the City and County of Broomfield, the school districts, North Metro Fire Protection and others listed on the tax bill. For more information regarding how tax rates are determined, contact the taxing authorities directly.
Notices of Valuation (NOV) for real property are mailed out every reappraisal (odd numbered) year no later than May 1. The appeal form is included with the NOV. If you wish to appeal your value, provide comparable sales (not listings) of similar homes in your area that have occurred during the statutory sales period.
For tax years 2023 and 2024, the sales period is from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2022. Email or mail the signed form with sales or other supporting documentation to the assessor by June 8.
For more information and to review sales used by the Assessor department, visit the Appeal Information page.
NOVs are only mailed out in intervening (even) years when there has been a change in value to the property due to things like finished basements, additions, etc. Select this link to access a 2023 appeal form.
Under Colorado law, all real property (land, buildings, improvements, etc.) must be re-appraised every two years. This occurs in each odd-numbered year (2021, 2023, etc.). The Assessor Department studies the prices of properties which sold during the 24-month period ending on June 30 of the year prior to the reappraisal. For example, the new 2023 values are based on properties which sold between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2022, and based on what was there as of January 1, 2023 (assessment date). While we assess the property based on what was there on the assessment date of January 1, 2023 we base that value on the appraisal date of June 30, 2022. The appraisal date reflects the market data on that data.
New values are set each year for business personal property owned by businesses based on the information annually submitted by the taxpayers on personal property declarations.
All property in Colorado is valued as it exists on January 1 of the current year. January 1 is the Assessment Date. If a structure is not fully built on that date, a partial value reflecting the percentage of completion is used. The value is based on what it would be worth as of June 30, 2022, the Appraisal Date.
The Assessor determines the "actual" (market) value for all real and personal property. Actual value is then reduced by a percentage to derive the "assessed" value. For the 2023 Property Tax Year, the residential property assessment rate is 6.765%. For example, if a homeowner receives a Notice of Valuation from the Assessor stating that the actual value of their property is $530,000, its assessed value would be $36,850 rounded (530,000 x 0.06765). See FAQ "What are the assessment rates on all property types?" for the rest of the assessment rates.
Mill levies are set by the taxing authorities (City and County of Broomfield, North Metro Fire Dept., school districts, metro districts, etc.) in which your property is located. Areas where these tax authorities overlap are put into Tax Areas in the assessor's database. Every property in a tax area is taxed by that area's total net mill levy. The property tax revenues support services in your specific area. The assessor reports the total assessed value to the tax authorities every year and the tax authorities determine their budget and send their mill levy certification to the County no later than December 15.
Mill levies are finalized at the end of December each year and posted early January. Mill Levies by Tax Area/District Report
The taxing authorities are school districts, special districts, etc. in the area your property is located. They hold annual public budget hearings to determine the funds needed for next year's operations, which will determine the mill levy. Most hearings are in the autumn. Being present at the budget hearings makes you more involved and informed about the cost and quality of services provided. Click here for Tax Authority Contact Info.

Researching to determine your property's mineral rights is not a function of the assessor's office but we can offer a general direction from where to begin your search. Mineral rights may or may not appear on your deed. Deeds are recorded for public record at the Clerk & Recorder’s Office. Since Broomfield has only been a county since 2001, our records are not complete so you may need to contact the legacy county (the county your property was located in before 2001 - Boulder, Weld, Jefferson or Adams).
Due to the complexity of mineral rights research, you may need to hire a real estate attorney or a title company to assist you.
Property lines can only be determined by a licensed surveyor. The City and County of Broomfield does not offer this service.

PEAK maintained and operated the event center in a positive manner, per the Operator Agreement. The number of shows and events and the type of programming did not meet expectations compared to the original plans suggested in 2005-06. The region already had several high-performing smaller venues available in city hubs like Denver and Boulder; it was difficult for the event center to contend for shows. PEAK replaced the initial operator (Broomfield Sports and Entertainment, LLC), but was unable to fully program the event center to meet a 150-200 event level, which would have resulted in a successful, sustaining facility.
The City and County of Broomfield will explore alternative development concepts for the property.
The business case for both the City and County of Broomfield and an operator does not exist due to lack of demand, competition from other venues, and costs of operating the venue.
The City and County of Broomfield will continue to explore alternative development concepts for the property with the assistance of a third-party consultant.
All efforts will be taken to reduce dust, vibration, noise, and traffic impacts as a result of the demolition and any future redevelopment.
The specific cost of the demolition of the 1STBANK Center has not been determined. It will be completed through a public bid approach. The bids may also be different based on whether it would include sale of scrap items (seats, etc.) and the scrap value of those materials (metals, etc.).
The two parcels, owned by BURA (10 acres) and CCOB (12 acres), are expected to result in negotiated price sale. It is reasonable to expect the sale proceeds will be net positive of the amount of the bond balloon payment and the demolition costs.
Over the last five years, the City and County of Broomfield has investigated additional uses for the facility, including hosting collegiate and minor league sports, converting it into a convention or exhibition center, or using it as a retail or restaurant hall with indoor play space. None of the financial models associated with those options has proven viable.
The city will recycle assets including scrap metal, concrete, asphalt, mechanical and electrical equipment. In addition to these materials, it is anticipated that furniture, fixtures, memorabilia, arena seats, IT equipment, signage, and scoreboards will be monetized. One of the values expressed by Broomfield’s City Council and the community is to recover and reuse construction and other materials - as opposed to increasing the waste flow.

Final results in ranked choice elections will not be known until all absentee and military ballots are counted, which can take a week or longer after Election Day.
No. Your vote only counts for the highest active candidate on your ballot. Your vote will only count for your 2nd choice if your 1st choice is eliminated, and so on.
Ranked choice voting is a voting method that allows voters to rank election contest candidates in order of preference when there are three or more candidates.
No. If you rank your preferred candidate more than once then only your first ranking will count. There is no strategic benefit to giving the same candidate multiple rankings. It does not help them, and it takes away your chance to have a say about whom you would choose next out of the remaining candidates. This is another way to “exhaust” your ballot
Yes! You can still vote for just your 1st- choice candidate. However, ranking other candidates does not harm your 1st choice. If your 1st and only choice is eliminated, your vote will have no influence on the outcome of the election. This is often referred to as an “exhausted ballot”.
Yes. To vote for a candidate whose name is not on the ballot, write their name on the “Write-in” line and fill in an oval to rank your write-in choice.
Those interested in becoming a qualified write-in candidate may complete a write-in candidate affidavit.
Plurality is a method of voting where the number of votes is limited to the number of offices to be filled. The candidate who receives the highest number of votes is elected.
The candidate will be credited with the highest ranking. All other rankings for that candidate must be ignored.
Follow the directions on your ballot above the ranked choice voting contest(s). You rank your candidate choices by 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. place by filling the oval in the appropriate column for the candidate. Do not give multiple candidates the same ranking.
During the first round of tabulation, the voting system tabulates the first-choice ranks on each ballot. If no candidate receives over 50 percent of the first-choice ranks on each ballot, the voting system must continue to the next round of tabulation.
During the next round of tabulation, the voting system must ensure that the candidate with the fewest first-choice ranks in the first round is eliminated and the eliminated candidate’s votes are transferred to each ballot’s next-ranked continuing candidate.
If no candidate receives over 50 percent of the votes cast after the second round the voting system must repeat additional rounds of tabulation until there is a winning candidate.
Broomfield will share unofficial election results after polls close on Election Day. After all absentee ballots have been received, we will hold Canvass and release certified results. You can find election results at www.votebroomfield.com
Yes. You may choose to rank only one candidate.
You do not have to rank every candidate. However, a skipped ranking and any lower ranking must be ignored.
There must be at least three candidates to use ranked voting. If there are only two candidates the winner will be determined by plurality.
Preliminary results will be available on Election Night at VoteBroomfield.com.

Colorado SNAP households have been getting an extra amount of benefits every month since March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. These extra benefits are called “emergency allotments or max allotments” and most households have been getting this on top of their regular SNAP benefits. These emergency allotments were authorized by Congress, but they are temporary, and will be ending in March 2023.
SNAP Emergency or Max Allotment is ending with the benefit month of February 2023 due to recent congressional action to end those allotments. Colorado was approved to issue additional SNAP benefits due to the State and Federal emergency declarations that were in place during the pandemic. There is nothing the state or counties can do to extend the emergency allotment benefits once they have ended.
A final emergency allotment will be issued in February 2023. You will see a reduction in your monthly SNAP benefits beginning March 2023. This may have a significant impact on families.
Yes, you will continue to receive your regular SNAP benefits as long as you remain eligible for this program. Your benefit amounts are based on a number of factors, including household size, income, and your specific circumstances.
February 2023 will be the last month households will receive max allotment/emergency allotments. Beginning in March 2023, SNAP households will see a reduction in monthly SNAP benefits.
Colorado Department of Human Services and county offices cannot continue the additional benefits once maximum allotments have ended in March 2023, even if you appeal the action to end the additional benefits. You are able to appeal if you believe the base benefit calculation is incorrect.
You should receive a notice any time your benefit changes to inform you of your current benefit level. You can access your notices via the Colorado PEAK website and the MyCOBenefits app.
This change may have a significant impact on many SNAP families.
SNAP participants can call 1-800-816-4451 for questions about their benefits, or for more information, visit the Colorado Department of Human Services website.
Historic resources are buildings, sites, structures, objects, and districts that are significant in American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and culture. In addition, resources provide character, continuity, and a sense of uniqueness to the community.
For purposes of designating a local historic landmark, historic properties are defined by the Municipal Code as being at least 50 years old with architectural, social, geographic, or environmental importance. In addition, the historic property will fit at least one of the following criteria:
• Exemplify specific elements of an architectural style or period;
• Illustrate the work of an architect or builder recognized for expertise;
• Demonstrate superior craftsmanship or high artistic value;
• Represent an innovation in construction materials or design;
• Represent a style particularly associated with the Broomfield area;
• Represent a built environment of a group of people in an era of history;
• Illustrate a significant historic remodel and identify the site of an historic event;
• Exemplify cultural, political, economic or social heritage of the community;
• Represent an association with a notable person, or the work of a notable person;
• Represent a typical example or association with a particular ethnic group;
• Represent a unique example of an event in Broomfield’s history;
• Enhance a sense of identity of the community; or
• Consist of an established and familiar natural setting or visual feature of the community.
Broomfield is a Certified Local Government (CLG). CLG status allows for a partnership of local interests with State and National services and programs.
Surveying is a systematic method of documenting historic resources through fieldwork and research. Each resource is documented with photographs, maps, and a written description on an inventory form.
A survey does not require approval by the property owner, although support and involvement by property owners is encouraged and helps to ensure all available information is documented.
Surveys help ensure consistent identification, documentation, and evaluation of important cultural and historic resources. Undertaking a survey to identify historic resources acknowledges that these resources have value to the community and future generations.
A survey is fundamental to historic preservation because it results in the identification of historic resources, helps determine which of those resources should be preserved, and can be essential in shaping local ordinances, guidelines, or master plans to protect these resources.
In general, surveys usually begin at the reconnaissance level. After additional research and identification of property types, a smaller number of properties are selected for time-and-research-heavy intensive surveys.
Inclusion within a survey can greatly benefit owners of a wide range of potentially historic properties. For example, buildings with high levels of architectural significance, or association with important events or people, can be documented as eligible for listing as a local historic landmark, or in the Colorado or National Registries.
Properties determined as eligible may choose to apply for a local, State, or National designation.
Designated properties may qualify and apply for State or Federal tax credits for rehabilitation, restoration, or reconstruction work that meets the Secretary of the Interior's Standards.
No. There is no fee for inclusion within a designated survey. Survey work is funded through grants and the City's General Fund.
No. A survey is a method to document the community’s historical resources. No restrictions or requirements are imposed on property owners. A survey is a public document.
A landmark is a place, structure, feature, or object that has been designated by the City Council as historically or architecturally significant by itself or because it is associated with events, persons, or trends significant in the history of the City. Landmark designation recognizes individual properties, protecting them so their unique qualities and characteristics are maintained and preserved.
A property owner, any board or commission in Broomfield, or the City Council may nominate a property, area, building, or structure for historic landmark designation. Property owner permission is required as part of the application. Any nomination excluding the property owner’s permission will be rejected by the City.
The application is reviewed by staff, finalized and presented to the Historic Landmark Board at a public hearing for recommendation to City Council. City Council holds a public hearing and takes final action on a landmark designation application.
Local historic landmarks must be maintained adequately and historic features preserved. Modifications, alterations, and the removal or demolition of a landmarked resource requires approval by the Historic Landmark Board through a Certificate of Appropriateness.
Please contact the Broomfield Historic Landmark Board and staff liaison.
No. Landmark designation means that changes must be publicly reviewed to ensure that the landmark's special qualities are not lost through inappropriate alterations.
If you want to demolish your home or significantly alter the exterior characteristics of your home or build a new structure your plans would go through a review called a “Certificate of Appropriateness” (COA) by the Historic Landmark Board. Normal maintenance and repair are exempt from COA review. The Board works closely with owners both before and after designation to develop design solutions that respect the landmark's significance while acknowledging its ongoing use.
The City's COA review criteria are specified in the City's preservation ordinance and the city considers the guidelines of the National Register in their COA review.
A historic district possesses a significant concentration, linkage, or continuity of sites, buildings, structures, or objects united historically or aesthetically by plan or physical development.
District designation contributes to retaining neighborhood character by discouraging demolition of historic buildings and encouraging their reuse and sensitive renovation with tax incentives and zoning code flexibility. It also helps ensure that new construction is compatible with the existing neighborhood.
Neighborhood character or feel is an important factor attracting people to neighborhoods. Local designation provides a "tool" to help retain neighborhood character, keeping the neighborhood special and a desirable place to live. Studies have shown that people are more willing to invest in locally designated neighborhoods because of the greater degree of certainty that designated neighborhoods will retain their special character.
Numerous studies have shown a variety of benefits for locally designated historic districts including property values in locally designated neighborhoods increasing more or holding their property value better than in comparable non-designated neighborhoods.
You will not be told what color you can paint your house or what can be done inside your house. You can change the windows in your home although if you have historic wood frame windows often times the most economical choice is to restore rather than to replace those windows.
If you want to demolish your home or significantly alter the exterior characteristics of your home or build a new structure your plans would go through a review called a “Certificate of Appropriateness” (COA) by the Historic Landmark Board. Normal maintenance and repair are exempt from COA review. The goal of the COA review is to maintain neighborhood character by discouraging and/or preventing the sort of changes that over time can erode what makes a neighborhood special.
Yes. All buildings within a district are subject to Certificate of Appropriateness review but not to the same extent. At the time of approval, the structures within a local district will be identified as either contributing (historic) or non-contributing (non-historic). Generally, a building must be at least 50 years old and retain its historic features and feel to be considered as a contributing resource. The review of proposed significant exterior changes or demolition of a non-contributing structure will be focused on the potential impact to the neighborhood rather than on the individual building.
Yes. Inclusion in a historic district requires approval by all affected property owners. Public participation is an important part of any City process.
As population grows and development pressure increases, local citizens actually have less influence on how their communities evolve – unless there is some sort of local design review in place that oversees development. Creating a historic district is a way of singling out the special places within Broomfield. It helps ensure the unique attributes that define those will remain for future generations and preventing their gradual erosion.
Historic districts encourage reinvestment. When you are part of a historic district, you have some certainty that any new construction or renovation activity will be respectful of the existing character of the community and its architecture. Historic district regulations are quality assurance standards, so that if you invest in your building, you are assured that your investment won’t be negated by a thoughtless renovation next door. Local historic districts encourage better design. There is generally a greater sense of cohesion, more innovative use of materials, and greater public appeal within historic districts than in areas without historic designations.

When emergencies happen, be the first to know. Through LookoutAlert, emergency responders are able to send official, real-time alerts to the public with information about potentially life-saving actions they may need to take to keep themselves and their families safe.
As part of LookoutAlert, you can also sign up for Smart911, which allows you to create a safety profile for yourself and your household which is provided directly to 9-1-1 when you call 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency, allowing them to send the right responders to the right location with the right information. By signing up for LookoutAlert, you are taking a large step toward improving your personal safety.
When an emergency occurs that meets the criteria for sending out an alert to the public, emergency dispatchers will gather the necessary information and send out an alert to the affected area. Alerts can be sent out region-wide to everyone who has opted-in to the system, or to a specific area or neighborhood for more localized events.
This service is provided at no cost to the public; however, message and data rates may apply depending on your provider and phone services.
During the sign-up process you have the option to choose how you want to be notified and what types of alerts to receive. For any notification you choose to receive, you can specify whether you want text message, email, voice delivery – or any combination of these.
To avoid being charged frequent pay-per-text or pay-per-call fees by your phone service provider, you can select only the types of messages you prefer – for example, selecting email only as the delivery type – or opt-in for ‘emergency alerts’ (which are infrequent in typical usage).
Broomfield is always looking for new ways to improve the safety of our residents. With LookoutAlert in place, first responders have the ability to send a mass notification to landlines, cell phones and email addresses for residents who have opted-in with important information that could save lives.
LookoutAlert helps fill another safety gap within the Broomfield dispatch center. During large-scale emergencies, the 911 center can be quickly overwhelmed with a high volume of 911 calls received from the public. A majority of the 911 calls received during emergencies are not about life-threatening situations, but rather contain requests for information about what is going on during a crisis or emergency. By sending alerts directly to the public on their preferred devices, we will keep the public informed and at the same time reduce the number of 911 calls from residents not in immediate need of emergency services. Easily available and authoritative public information will improve the 911 center’s ability to keep phone lines open to respond to critical emergencies.
While LookoutAlert is an excellent system, we cannot guarantee that you will receive notification in all cases. Disasters and emergencies are chaotic and unpredictable, and notification is dependent on external providers such as your wireless carrier or email delivery service outside of our control. LookoutAlert will use several means of communications to try to ensure that should any one communications method, technology, or delivery option be unavailable to reach residents, other methods will be used to improve the likelihood that residents will see the message.
Signing up for LookoutAlert is easy. Sign up and register for LookoutAlert and enter your contact information.
LookoutAlert integrates with Smart911 platform, a 9-1-1 service available throughout our region, for which Rave Mobile Safety is the vendor for both products. This means that you can manage your information and preferences for both services through one account, accessible at either www.smart911.com or the LookoutAlert sign-up page.
LookoutAlert is available to anyone who lives, works, travels through, or visits the City and County of Broomfield, Jefferson County, and the City of Westminster, Colorado. The address that you register can be your home location, work location or any other location you care about. For those who visit our area, but do not live or work here, pick the address of the location(s) you visit often.
While LookoutAlert integrates with the existing Smart911 service in our region, they are two services that each serve a unique purpose. Smart911 allows you to create a safety profile for yourself and your household which is provided directly to 9-1-1 when you call 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency, allowing them to send the right responders to the right location with the right information. This information could include medical history, allergies and medications, number of residents in a home and even a picture of the family dog can all be added to your safety profile.
LookoutAlert will ensure you receive emergency alerts from emergency responders through text, email or phone call. Rave Mobile Safety is the vendor for both LookoutAlert and Smart911.
Login to your account at www.smart911.com and click on the Alerts tab at the top of the page.
You can sign up for both LookoutAlert and Smart911 by visiting either www.smart911.com or the LookoutAlert sign-up page and creating an account. Be sure to add as much information as you want dispatchers to have in the event of an emergency to your profile. Click on the Alerts tab at the top of the page to ensure you opt-in to receive alerts from LookoutAlert.
Residents in the coverage area who have a landline phone may receive alerts. However, there are strict rules governing when the JCECA can use this contact information to send out an alert. Only extremely critical alerts containing potentially life-saving information will be sent. In order to ensure that you are able to get all emergency alerts we recommend that you sign-up for LookoutAlert online. If you do not sign-up and register your contact information, you will not receive alerts on your preferred devices, and may miss out on receiving important safety information. Emergency communications may utilize other tools to notify the public but registering for LookoutAlert is the best way to get emergency notifications for your area.
Emergency alerts are sent 24/7 when there is an immediate threat to life and/or property. In addition to emergency alerts, you can also choose to receive customizable community notifications. These may include notifications about:
All text messages sent from LookoutAlert are sent using five or six-digit numbers called “shortcodes.” When you receive a text via a short code, you’ll receive a message from any of followingshort code numbers: 226787, 67283, 78015, 81437, or 77295.
We strongly encourage you to save these numbers in your phone’s address book. Simplycreate a contact called “LookoutAlert” and add the numbers above in the standardphone number field. This way, when you receive an alert message, these will be morerecognizable as an official communication from the City and County of Broomfield.
You are not able to reply to texts or emails sent by LookoutAlert. Voice messages provide a dial-back number to replay an alert message and will direct you to a website address for additional information about the event.
Once you have signed up online at the LookoutAlert sign-up page and confirmed your contactinformation within the system, you will begin receiving alerts.
Follow the below steps to change your LookoutAlert preferences (for example, to reduce the number of messages of a certain type, or to change the contacts used for each kind of message):
The frequency for which you receive alerts depends on the addresses you provide and the types of alerts you select to receive as well as the frequency of actual emergencies. Emergency alerts will only be sent when there is an immediate threat to life and/or property.
This system is not intended to bombard you with information. LookoutAlert will only send you alerts about the information you select to receive. To change your alert settings, login to the LookoutAlert registration page.
If a call completes and is sent to your answering machine or voice mail system, a message is left. If a phone call is not answered or busy, the system redials your number several times.
LookoutAlert messages are more likely to be delivered to your devices than messages sent from local phone numbers during emergencies when telecommunication is down; however, receipt of LookoutAlert messages is not guaranteed. The vendor for LookoutAlert, Rave Mobile Safety, supports mass systems, including systems hosted outside of the state of Colorado, to improve reliability and redundancy while lessening reliance on local infrastructure that might be distressed during notifications via geographically redundant an event. Receipt of LookoutAlert messages may depend on your phone carrier and their cell phone tower operations, network connectivity, or other factors.
LookoutAlert will leave a voice message, if applicable.
If your residence is outside of the City and County of Broomfield, Jefferson County, and the City of Westminster, Colorado, you should sign up for the alert system that covers your area. You can also sign up for NOAA All Hazard Radios (NOAA Weather Radio), EAS Emergency Alert System (EAS) – Colorado Broadcasters Association, and WEA (Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) | Federal Communications Commission (fcc.gov))
No, your information is private and will not be used or distributed in any manner. The information that you provide is exempt from public disclosure and will be used for emergency purposes only.
Personal information provided to LookoutAlert is private and only used to notify you for official Broomfield communications and emergency notifications. Your information is not used for marketing purposes and will not be sold to telemarketers or data-mining organizations. A variety of “opt-in” mechanisms are available to ensure that only the messages you want to receive are getting delivered via the devices and communications modes that you choose.
LookoutAlert utilizes the highest standards in physical and computer security technologies and conducts regular audits to ensure all information is kept secure. Privacy policies are also outlined in the Terms and Conditions you review when you sign up to receive LookoutAlert notifications.

The City and County of Broomfield accepts applications only for posted positions. To apply for current openings, submit a completed application online at www.broomfield.org/jobs. Human Resources will review all applications and notify applicants of their status. If applicants meet the necessary requirements, the following testing is scheduled: 1. Physical Agility Test 2. Computer Voice Stress Analysis 3. Oral Board Interview 4. Thorough Background Investigation 5. Interview with the Chief of Police and/or Deputy Chief of Police 6. Psychological Exam, Medical Exam, and Drug Screen
Failure to pass any state of testing in the process would terminate an applicant from continuing further in the process.
Entry salary would be based upon full years of applicable law enforcement or corrections service. Contact Broomfield's Human Resources Department at 303.438.6320 or the Broomfield Training Division at 720.887.2086 for lateral officer salary information. The Chief of Police makes all final decisions as to the salary for laterals. If you have previous police officer-detention experience and have applied for a police officer-patrol position, your experience in detention would not justify an increase in salary. If you have previous police officer-patrol experience and have applied for a police officer-detention position, this would not justify an increase in salary.
If you notice behavioral changes or if you suspect that your child has been sexually victimized, contact your local law enforcement agency, Department of Social Services, or Child Advocacy Center immediately. Also, give your child permission to talk to you about things that may be bothering them and encourage them to attend child abuse prevention programs held through schools and community programs. It is important to remember that though SVP's may pose a risk, they are not the only sex offenders in the community. Other offenders who may be dangerous, but who are not subject to community notification by law, include all un-convicted sex offenders, all sex offenders whose offenses were committed prior to July 1, 1999, and many who have not been identified as known sex offenders. Research indicates that a person is most likely to be sexually assaulted by someone they know.
Most SVP's are sentenced to lengthy prison terms, although some SVP's can be released into the community on probation directly upon sentencing or on parole following incarceration and sex offense specific mental health treatment at the Department of Corrections. This may also mean that the SVP may be granted a work release as a condition of parole or probation. In determining an SVP's risk to the community, the court or parole board considers the professional recommendation of the probation officer or Department of Corrections manager, and the assessment of sex offense-specific mental health evaluators or treatment providers. If the SVP is determined to be manageable in the community, a recommendation may be made that he / she be supervised by probation or parole. In all cases, the court or parole board must make the determination regarding the placement of an SVP. The court or parole board makes the final determination regarding the SVP's release into the community. As a State, we do not imprison all sex offenders - 65% are released into the community, including those who are supervised by the criminal justice system through probation or parole. In Colorado, many SVP's will be subject to our Lifetime Supervision Law, which makes it easier to contain an offender if they demonstrate increased risk. In cases of other sex offenders who are not determined to be SVP's, many are convicted sex offenses with determinate sentences, meaning they have a time limit on their sentence. These offenders may complete their required period of supervision or be released into the community without probation or parole supervision. Most are required to register as a sex offender with law enforcement.
Many sex offenders can be closely monitored for risk behavior while under supervision and treatment. Some can learn through treatment to manage their sexual offender behaviors and decrease their risk of re-offense. However, such behavior management should not be considered a "cure" and treatment cannot permanently eliminate the risk that sex offenders may repeat their offenses.
Read the educational and public safety materials available at the Community Notification Meeting, which offer prevention information regarding sex offenders for you and your family. Read the SVP Bulletin to learn more about this specific SVP and any behaviors you should report to law enforcement. Support and attend sexual assault prevention programs for yourself and your children.
In a manner that does not incite panic, instruct your children to avoid all contact with the SVP, even if the SVP's offense of conviction does not involve an offense against a child. Instruct them to avoid being near the SVP's residence or workplace. Review the public safety materials with your children and encourage your child to tell you about any contact with the SVP or any other person who makes them feel uncomfortable. It is important to teach your children about appropriate and inappropriate contact and to encourage regular discussion about their interactions with others.

Unfortunately, undesirable tastes and odors are common in drinking water supplies, and controlling them can be frustrating for both customers and water treatment staff. Chlorine compounds used for disinfection, distribution system materials, and changes in raw water quality may all cause undesirable tastes and odors. Read more...

Sometimes customers notice that their tap water has a brownish, yellow, or rusty color. The off-color is often first noticed against a white container, such as a sink, bathtub, or toilet, and usually appears suddenly. In most areas of Broomfield, brown water episodes are localized and temporary, generally caused by some nearby activity.
Stories and articles concerning fluoridation of drinking water frequently appear in newspapers, health newsletters, television programs and online content. More often than not, the reports oppose fluoridation, citing various studies and questioning its value. The questions Broomfield staff receive are typically to verify that our water is fluoridated, and at the appropriate concentration, or to voice concerns about possible safety and health risks.
Due to the high quality of both sources of Broomfield’s drinking water, very little lead is present as it leaves the Water Treatment Plants. However, as the water travels through the distribution system, it may pick up lead from plumbing materials such as pipes, fixtures, and joints. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. If you are concerned about elevated levels of lead in your home’s water, you may wish to have your water tested.

State law requires that the tax notice be mailed to the address on record for the property owner. Most mortgage companies get their tax information from a private tax service or directly from the county. If you feel your mortgage company needs a copy of the tax notice, you may mail them a copy with your next payment.
In order to conserve tax dollars, Broomfield will not be sending second half notices. You should be sure to mark the June 15th deadline on your calendar.
Property taxes on real estate paid after the due dates accrue interest at the rate of 12% per annum until the date of the tax lien auction. Delinquencies are normally advertised during the month of October and the tax lien sale is held in early November. It is beneficial to pay the tax by the end of September in order to avoid charges which result from the advertising of delinquent tax accounts and before the tax lien sale as described above. If the tax cannot be paid, there is a three year redemption period during which time you can pay the delinquency plus accrued interest and fees. Keep in mind that the next year's taxes will be due the first of the year. The onus is on the taxpayer to take every effort to keep from becoming delinquent on the payment of their property taxes, as a result of continued delinquency could ultimately be the loss of ownership of the property. If you have more questions, please contact the Citizen Assistance Center at 303.438.6390.
Property taxes are calculated by multiplying the assessed value of the property by the mill levy for the taxing area. The assessed value is a percentage of the actual value of your property. (For more information concerning valuation for taxation, refer to the Assessor's page.) The mill levy for the taxing area is the combination of the separate mill levies for each taxing authority within whose established boundaries your property lies.
Mill Levy Total.......... x 0.099512 (usually expressed as 99.512)
Total Property Tax...... $3,139.60
The mill levy is the tax rate used to calculate the tax bills of individual properties within a tax area or district. Each taxing authority determines how much revenue they require from property taxes and divides that by the total assessed value of the properties within their established boundaries, as supplied by the assessor. The resulting tax rate is multiplied by 1,000 to come up with the mill levy.
Property Tax Revenue Needed..........$2,500,000.00
/ Total Assessed Value.................... $31,350,000.00
= Tax Rate........................................ 0.079745
x 1,000............................................. 1,000
= Total Mill Levy................................ 79.745
Taxing authorities, including schools and fire protection districts, levy property taxes in an amount necessary to meet their budgetary needs for the following year. If you want to have a voice in the amount of taxes you will be asked to pay, you may want to attend public budget hearings and get involved in the process.
Property taxes are not paid for services rendered in a prior year. While property taxes are indeed paid on a prior year's valuation, the purpose of property taxes is to fund the following year's operations. Thus, property taxes for the tax year 2019 are to fund the budgets of the cities, counties, school districts, etc. for the year 2020.

For example, a "stealthy" toilet leak could be caused by a defective flapper valve. To determine if this is the case, place a few drops of food coloring or a dye tablet in the tank, and then wait about 10-15 minutes. If the color seeps into the bowl, the flapper valve is not sealing properly and should be repaired.
If your irrigation system is leaking, you may notice the sprinklers malfunctioning, or your lawn may seem especially saturated, water-logged, or "squishy" in some areas. You will need to replace any broken parts or hire a qualified plumber/landscaper to inspect the system.
For additional resources, please refer to this guide to detecting leaks.
Upon successful completion, you will receive a confirmation number for your records.

Broomfield has two main sources of high-quality drinking water: treated water purchased from Denver Water (approx. 40%), and raw water supplied to the Water Treatment Plant (approx. 60%) via the Colorado-Big Thompson (CBT) system and Windy Gap Project, under the management of the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District. Typically, the Broomfield and Denver water sources are blended together, but sometimes the entire community may be served by either water source.
