The City and County of Broomfield prohibits operating a solid fuel-fired heating device during high pollution days unless an exemption has been granted.  Below are links to the Broomfield Municipal Code:

8-15-020 - High pollution prohibition

8-15-030 - Exemptions

To obtain an exemption, you must submit a sworn statement certifying that your property meets one of the two exemption requirements.  This sworn statement must be submitted annually and is valid for one year.

For the purpose of determining compliance with the provisions of this chapter, the chief of police, a city police officer, or a community services officer is authorized to make inspections to determine whether solid fuel-fired heating devices are being operated on high pollution days. If any person refuses or restricts entry or free access to any part of the premises, or refuses inspection of any device, the chief of police, a city police officer, or a community services officer may seek from the municipal court a warrant for inspection and order that such person refusing inspection be required to permit an inspection at a reasonable time, without interference, restriction, or obstruction. The court shall have full power, jurisdiction, and authority to enforce all orders issued under the provisions of this chapter
