City of Commerce City Issues Local Disaster Declaration Out of Precaution for COVID-19
Following the Governor’s announcement declaring a state of emergency in response to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and due to the presence of COVID-19 in surrounding communities and its anticipated presence in Commerce City, the City Council and City Manager Brian McBroom have issued a Local Disaster Emergency Declaration. This declaration allows the city to effectively deploy resources and coordinate with federal, state, and county emergency agencies and public health agencies regarding response, recovery, and mitigation efforts.
All City of Commerce City facilities, including Municipal Court, remain closed to the public through March 29. Court dates that take place during the closure will be rescheduled. All parks, recreation and golf programs and activities are suspended through at least March 29. This schedule is subject to change, as the city will evaluate whether to reopen facilities to the public and resume normal operating hours after that time.
Essential public safety services are continuing and the city will perform non-emergency operations and services to the fullest extent possible. Residents can contact the city by phone, email, or the c3gov.com/AskC3 reporting system for non-emergency programs and services.
The city has created a web page where residents can stay informed on local preparation, canceled or postponed event information, additional resources and more at c3gov.com/covid-19.
