The Proposed 2020 Larimer County Budget is now available online on the County's budget web page.. The total Proposed 2020 Budget includes $575.6 million in expenditures, of which $289.4 million is for general operations, $187.5 million is for capital projects, and $16.5 million is for disaster response projects. Copies of the budget are also available at the Larimer County Budget Office, 200 West Oak Street, Fort Collins, Colorado.  Highlights include:

  • To ease the impact on taxpayers from the increased property values determined in the 2019 reappraisal, the proposed 2020 budget includes a temporary property tax credit totaling $3.5 million through a temporary reduction in the mill levy.
  • Larimer County is responsible for many public safety services in our community. Expenses in the Proposed 2020 budget include funding the first phase of the Jail Improvement project. The budget also includes $518,000 to increase compensation for sworn law enforcement in the Office of the Sheriff to remain competitive in the market. Two new Deputy District Attorneys are being added and two staff positions are being added in the Office of the Coroner.
  • Significant recovery work is continuing from the 2013 flood, which is nearing completion.
  • Capital projects represent a large share of the 2020 budget as the County implements several infrastructure master plans, and the direction provided by the Voters in 2018 to construct a facility to provide behavioral health services. Significant investments include:
    • The first phase of construction to improve the County Jail ($50.5 million in 2020)
    • Replacement of the County’s outdated central fleet shop on Vine Dr. ($29.5 million)
    • Initial site work and construction of a Behavioral Health Facility ($18.5 million)
    • Implementation of the Ranch Master Plan ($12 million)
    • Initial work on new facilities in the Solid Waste Department ($10 million)
