Longmont: Council to Consider Extending Transportation Tax

On July 22 the City Council will consider an ordinance on first reading to extend the current ¾ cent transportation tax for another 10 years. In April the Council had told staff it wanted to review an ordinance that would continue with the current funding level to cover four main areas, including 1) Street maintenance, transportation services, traffic signal maintenance, and snow removal; 2) Capital construction projects; 3) Street rehabilitation program, concrete repair and replacement; and 4) Transportation system management projects, school and pedestrian safety, traffic signals, turn lanes, safety, capacity, and multi-modal improvements.

Assuming the Council approves the ordinance, it will face a second reading in early August. The tax was first passed in 1986 and has been extended by Longmont voters five times since then.
