Emergency Order 2020-7 Regulating the Operation of Marijuana Businesses (REPEAL)Emergency Order 2020-7 – REPEALED CITY OF BOULDER ORDER RELATED TO DECLARATION OF LOCAL DISASTER EMERGENCY A disaster emergency was declared by the city manager on March 14, 2020. The city council confirmed and extended the emergency declaration until further notice at the March 16, 2020, special council meeting. Pursuant to Section 2-2.5-7 “Powers” B.R.C. 1981, the city manager finds a need to issue this order in order to protect the health, safety and welfare of persons or property within the city or to otherwise preserve the public peace or abate, clean up or mitigate the effects of any disaster emergency. On March 20, 2020, Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed Executive Order 2020-0011 “Ordering the Temporary Suspension of Certain Regulatory Statutes Due to the Presence of COVID-19.” This Order allowed the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division to implement emergency rules such as Rule 3-345(3)(b) that provided regulated marijuana stores the ability to take orders by phone or online and enabling curbside pick-up. This emergency relief allowed marijuana stores to continue to serve patients and customers safely and securely during the COVID-19 emergency. The Order also temporarily suspended fingerprinting requirements for renewal applications. While this Order was extended several times, most recently on May 12, 2021, it is set to expire on June 10, 2021, at 11:59 pm.
