Contracts & Purchasing

The Thornton Contracts and Purchasing Office is always looking to fund and implement projects that help make Thornton more environmentally friendly and sustainable.

Examples include:

  1. Installing a solar photovoltaic system on the roof of Thornton City Hall
  2. Replacing interior and exterior lights with efficient LED bulbs
  3. Finding ways to repurpose/reuse old furniture instead of sending it to the landfill
  4. Purchasing city vehicles that are as fuel efficient as possible
  5. All forklifts are now powered by propane.
