Larimer Humane Society Asks for Tax Increase Funding


facebook

The Larimer Humane Society plans to ask county voters to approve a sales tax increase to fund a new facility near the Fort Collins Loveland Airport. Humane society officials told Larimer County commissioners on Monday that the nonprofit will pursue a citizen initiative to place the tax question on the November ballot. They must gather about 12,500 valid signatures from county voters by July 18th to get the question on the ballot. The tax question would ask taxpayers for $13 million of the $16.5 million estimated cost of constructing a new building on 27 acres of property on County Road 30. The tax would be 1 cent on every $10 purchase. The Loveland Reporter Herald has more on this story.

“We think this is the solution,” said John Frey, chair of the Humane Society board.
