Longmont Voters Can Submit Written Comments About City Ballot Issues
Registered Longmont voters can submit written comments for or against three bond-issue proposals the City Council has placed on the Nov. 6 election ballot.
The comments will be summarized and included in an information packet mailed to voters before the election, city officials said. Registered voters have until noon, Sept. 21, to get their comments to the City Clerk’s Office in the Civic Center Complex, 350 Kimbark St., Longmont.
