Be Ready Longmont Program a Prep for Emergencies
During the initial stages of a large scale incident, essential services may not be available. Our community is a partner and an asset that is often overlooked during disasters. During 2011, the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) will be providing our community with the tools necessary to safely help each other and empower our community to help itself. That program is called Be Ready Longmont. Preparedness is everyone’s job. We encourage you to visit www.ci.longmont.co.us/emergency for additional information and updates.
Help Our Neighbors in Need COPE
Citizens’ Opportunity to Provide Electricity (COPE) lets you help assure that City utilities of your neighbors in need remain uninterrupted. To begin contributing, check the COPE box on your monthly utility bill. Your monthly contribution continues until you request that it be discontinued. For more information call 303-651-8664.
Leisure Pool at Rec Center to Close Temporarily
The leisure pool at the Longmont Recreation Center will be closed at 10 am on Sunday, January 30, for draining and repair work. The lap pool will be open and unaffected during the leisure pool's closure. Tentative reopening is set for Tuesday, Feb 1. We apologize for any inconvenience. Call 303-774-4800.
Track the Colorado Legislature Online
The 2011 Colorado legislative session opened Wednesday, January 12, and is scheduled to adjourn May 11. Prior to the session, the Longmont City Council passed several sets of legislative policies, including water policies recommended by the Longmont Water Board. These policies help guide legislative activities. During the session, City staff track legislation that has a “municipal interest” and bills that may affect Longmont. To see the bills being tracked or for more information regarding general legislative information and the 2011 legislative session visit www.ci.longmont.co.us/city_manager/legislative_info.
