Pick up Your Free Longmont Tote Bag
Spend $15 at any participating Longmont retail business and you’ll receive a tote bag at no additional cost when you present the coupon in the December Longmont Life and City Line publications. This is the city’s way of thanking you for shopping local and keeping your sales tax dollars in the community. In addition to supporting businesses owned by your friends and neighbors, you are supporting vital city services such as the recreation center, the library, public safety, parks and roads. Don’t delay because bags are limited. Visit www.YouBelonginLongmont.org to see the most up-to-date list of participating merchants.
Most City Facilities Closed for Thanksgiving
Longmont city government observes Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 24, as a holiday. The following facilities will be CLOSED: Civic Center, Service Center, Development Services Center, Library, Senior Center, Museum, Youth Center, Waste Diversion Center, St. Vrain Memorial Building, and Recreation Center. Thursday’s trash and recycling will be picked up on Friday. For more information visit www.ci.longmont.co.us.
City to Pick Up Branches and Limbs
Due to the recent storm, the City will provide a special tree limb collection in residential areas. The limbs must be curbside the week before your collection week. Branches will not be collected from alleys. Any materials on the curb after the collection date will not be picked up, and the property owner or tenant may be subject to municipal code violations. The collection program will begin November 14 and follow the leaf collection schedule. Visit www.ci.longmont.co.us/solidwaste/events/curbsideleaf.htm, or call 303-651-8416 for more information.
Stop N Drop Large Unwanted Items on Saturday
A Large Item Stop-N-Drop will be held from 8 am to 2 pm on Saturday, November 19, at the Public Works Maintenance Facility, 375 Airport Road. Residents can bring large and bulky household items for disposal, and City employees will unload your items for you. You must bring a City of Longmont utility bill as the program is available at no additional cost only to Longmont refuse collection customers. For information about items that are not accepted call 303-651-8416 or visit the Solid Waste home page.
Construction to Close Mountain View Ave. at RR Tracks
Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) will begin repair work on the railroad crossing on Mountain View Ave beginning at 8:30 am on Tuesday, November 21. Mountain View Ave. will remain closed until Wednesday, November 23 weather permitting. Although the construction will vastly improve the rough ride over the tracks, it is expected to remain somewhat bumpy. Call 303-651-8304 for more information.
