COLORADO – Longmont Staff Unveils $353.24 Million Budget Proposal For 2020

Longmont staff has unveiled its proposal for a $353.24 million city government spending package for next year.

The staff-recommended 2020 operating budget, presented to city council as it concluded its Tuesday night meeting early Wednesday morning, does not include any increase in Longmont’s 13.42 municipal property tax mill levy or in its 3.53% sales and use tax rate.

However, Longmont will be asking voters in the Nov. 5 election to raise the city’s sales and use tax by 0.18%, increasing it from 3.53% to 3.71%, to back the proposed issuance of $45.5 million in bonds to finance design and construction of a competitive indoor swimming pool and ice rink and the cost of operating and maintaining that facility once it opens.
