COVID-19 and City Maintenance
Construction and maintenance are classified as essential services. The city is committed to community safety and is proactively taking steps to keep the community and city staff safe. The city's construction and maintenance projects will continue due to several factors, including financing, contract deadlines and public need. To follow social distancing guidelines, essential city staff, including maintenance staff, are reporting to work in smaller numbers and in staggered shifts. For your safety, do not approach construction zones or workers. Staff will be prioritizing urgent issues during this time and non-essential maintenance may experience a delayed response. We appreciate your patience and look forward to continuing to serve the community. For the latest information on the city’s response to COVID-19, visit bouldercolorado.gov/coronavirus.
