During the Jan. 8 Longmont City Council meeting, council approved the first reading of an ordinance making additional appropriations for expenses and liabilities of the City of Longmont for the fiscal year beginning Jan. 1, 2019.
Presented by Teresa Molloy, budget manager, is slated to be the first additional appropriation for the year of 2019, according to communication.
The ordinance will appropriate an additional $33,273,590 in two funds: Public Improvement and Public Safety.
Since the 2019 budget was approved in October, it did not account for the possible expenditures related to the November 2018 Ballot Items: 3A, Funding the Rehabilitation and Improvements of City Buildings, 3B, Funding Fire Station Renovation or Replacement and 3C, Funding Recreation Improvements. If the second reading of this ordinance passes on Jan. 22, the appropriations will be set for these expenses.
A public hearing and second reading will be held on Jan. 22, 2019 during the city council meeting. Residents are encouraged to arrive early to get their names on the list to speak during the public hearing.
