Longmont Museum Collection on the Move
How do you move 40,000 objects that span the entire history of Longmont? Very, very carefully. Since early March, a team of packers has been carefully boxing up the Longmont Museum’s collection in preparation for relocation from its current offsite storage facility at 103 Main St. to a temporary warehouse space. By the conclusion of the move, an estimated 40,000 objects will have been documented, packed, and transported to their new location. The collection is being relocated as part of the redevelopment of the 1st and Main area in Longmont. A longtime Longmont business, the Cheese Importers, will be moving into the building.
Residents Unlikely to Need Water Line Insurance
Longmont residents are receiving a form letter from a company called American Water Resources with an offer to purchase insurance on the water service lines entering their homes. This company is not associated with the City and the City is neither sponsoring nor encouraging the practice of purchasing this insurance. Property owners are responsible for the maintenance of the water service line from their property line to their house foundation. American Water Resources is a private company selling insurance that will cover certain repair costs on this portion of the water service line. Residents should know it is rare that a water service line needs the type of repair described in this letter. For more information call Longmont Water Utilities at 303-651-8468.
