When the noise rattled through Valerie Stozki’s kitchen one recent evening, she’d finally had enough. The buzzing coming from outside was loud — so loud her son couldn’t concentrate on his homework. So, she got on the city of Broomfield’s website and started typing.
“Thankfully it just stopped,” Stozki wrote in a complaint filed with the city last month. “But at 9:30 at night, I want to be sleeping. Not trying to finish up homework.”
The culprit, Stozki noted, was a new oil and gas site situated just off the highway near hundreds of homes on Broomfield’s northeast side.
