Z Welcome to Broomfield

Dear New Resident, On behalf of the City Council and our City and County Manager, Charles Ozaki, I wish to welcome you to our community! We take pride in our beautiful city and all it has to offer and we’re glad you’re here. Broomfield is a city with a strong sense of unity, pride and identity. Our city is planned with a balance of residential and commercial land use, with generous open space, parks and natural areas. Our residents enjoy a full array of employment, recreational opportunities and human services. As your Mayor, I work very hard with the City Council and City staff to meet the community’s needs. Our mission is “to work in partnership with the community to provide excellent services in an efficient, respectful, and courteous manner to enhance and protect the environment and quality of life of Broomfield citizens.” Broomfield County is the newest city and county in Colorado and one of the newest in the nation. It has been 100 years since the only other city and county in Colorado was formed – and that was Denver! With this new government designation, we’re pioneering new ways of providing city and county services. As part of our new approach to County government, we are especially proud of our one-stop-shopping approach to the delivery of state, municipal and county services, and district court services. To that end, our Community Assistance Center was formed as a point of contact for citizens. Carla, Jane, Laura, Kelli and Erica, the dedicated staff of the Center, assist in problem solving and a variety of other services - including water bill payments, dog licenses, and even passports! They are also here to provide information on practically anything to do with the City and County of Broomfield. Please stop by, if you need assistance, or feel free to call them directly at 303-438-6390. Again, welcome to the City and County of Broomfield. We look forward to serving you! Sincerely,

Randal E. Ahrens Mayor

A New Form of Government…

The Amendment to the Colorado Constitution creating the City and County of Broomfield is based on the principles of modern day public management: policy makers should be elected and administrators should be hired. The Mayor and City Council appoints the City and County Manager, and the Manager hires qualified staff to perform duties traditionally performed by elected county positions (e.g., sheriff, treasurer, assessor). These functions were easily integrated into combined City/County functions, eliminating fiscal and political conflicts which may exist among elected officers. The City and County Manager serves as the chief administrator, coordinating all phases of operations.

Broomfield City and County Government Broomfield is a home rule government with a council – manager form of government – it is basically a city that also operates county services and facilities. The City and County of Broomfield was established in November 2001, as Colorado’s 64th County. Previously, Broomfield residents resided in four different counties: Adams County, Boulder County, Jefferson County, and Weld County. Residents in need of various county or court services had to travel outside of Broomfield to Brighton, Boulder, Golden, or Greeley to obtain these services. With the support of the Mayor and City Council along with the City’s management staff, a grass roots citizens’ organization was formed to promote and educate citizens on the possibility of Broomfield becoming its own city and county. The ballot question was favorably decided by voters in November of 1998, giving the city a three-year transition period in which to organize before becoming Colorado’s newest County. With the transition to a combined city and county government, Broomfield offers “one-stop-shopping” to residents for city and county services – water bills; municipal, county and district court services; marriage licenses; birth and death certificates, health and human services programs; license plates – all of these services are now centrally located in Broomfield. The City and County of Broomfield values a strong sense of identity and pride created by a self-supporting community with proactive citizens of all ages. Broomfield residents take pride in the hometown values they have worked to create.

Assessor The Assessor department is responsible for discovering, listing, classifying and valuing all property in accordance with Colorado state law in the City and County of Broomfield for property tax purposes. The Assessor's office lists and values approximately 24,000 parcels in Broomfield. The market approach to value must be used to value residential properties. The market value of a residence is determined by the sales price of comparable residences within a time period set by the state. The assessed value is used by taxing authorities within Broomfield's boundaries, such as school districts, fire districts and special districts. For residential property, the assessed value is a calculation of the market value multiplied by the residential assessment rate which is set by the State of Colorado. The current residential assessment rate is 7.96%. The assessed value of all other property is a calculation of the value multiplied by 29%. The assessed value is then multiplied by the mill levy to determine the property tax due. For example, the property taxes of a home valued at $300,000 in a sample tax area would be figured as follows: $300,000 x .0796 = $23,880 (the assessed value). Then to estimate the tax on the property, multiply the assessed value by the various mill levies for your tax area: Sample Tax Area:

City & County of Broomfield School District North Metro Fire District XYZ Metro District Urban Drainage & Flood Control Dist. Total Mill Levy for Sample Area

28.968 mills 50.369 mills 11.246 mills 35.000 mills 00.608 mills 126.191 mills

Assessed Value x Mill Levy = Estimated Property Tax 23,880 x .126191 = $3,013.44 The calculation above is just an example. Your property taxes will depend on where you live and the taxing authorities in your area. Maps and a list of tax areas can be found on our website at http://www.broomfield.org and go to the Assessor’s page or by calling the Assessor’s office.

After two successful years of displaying the Healing Field flags in Northglenn and Broomfield, sufficient funds were raised to build a permanent memorial to the victims of 9/11. On the five-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks, the 9/11 Memorial was dedicated as a place of honor, healing and reflection. The memorial incorporates a 300 pound piece of metal from one of the World Trade Center towers and three life-sized bronze sculptures and wall inserts depicting each site of the attacks.
