Longmont: Council Adds Streets Tax to Ballot

The City Council voted unanimously to place a measure on the November 4th ballot asking voters to approve a 10-year extension of the three-quarter cent sales tax for street maintenance and improvement. The longer time frame will allow for planning and coordination with other government entities such as CDOT. If approved, the tax will be in effect through 2026. Since 1986 all street improvements have been funded by this tax, according to staff. Staff has a significant list of projects it hopes to fund if the tax is approved, including improvements on Hover and Ken Pratt.
