  • Broomfield City Council passed the second reading for the water license increase December 10th, 2019. The increase will go into effect for all permits issued as of January 1st, 2020. The following is language out of the Council memo for why license fees are being increased:                                  Water License (Connection) Fees License fees are the fees that are paid by developers and builders for new connections to the water system. The purpose of license fees is to provide funds to pay for the capital costs of expanding the water utility to serve new growth. Accordingly, the fees are used to pay for the follwing costs associated with the City & County's growth: recovery of past capital expenditures, payment of bond, Windy Gap Project and the Water Treatment Plant expansion. As discussed during the review of Broomfield's proposed 2019 Budget, an increase of 5.0% in water license fees are proposed for 2019. This increase is recommended, primarily, due to the increased costs associated with the Windy Gap project and the construction of the Water Treament Plant expansion.                               Current fee - $23,577 - Future (Jan 1st, 2020) fee - $24,756                             These amounts are per TE - and we assign 1 TE per house                                 Sewer License and Meter Fees will not increase for 2020.

Attached is an Xcel Energy free business energy audit promotional offer for buildings <50,000 square feet. Normally this level of an audit was $125, but this promotion lowers the cost to $0 until the end of June 2019. In addition, businesses with an annual peak demand of less than 100 kW can qualify to receive free, select energy-saving products, including screw-in LED lamps and faucet aerators at the time of the energy audit. We would like to drive awareness, interest and participation in building audits and help our BEST program reach it's goal of achieve 365 energy-related actions by the end of June 2019.
