The City of Littleton is faced with an annual $6.5 million revenue shortage in its Capital Projects Fund. This deficit is due to rising infrastructure maintenance and repair costs, steadily increasing capital expenditure needs, an historically low tax rate, and a lack of revenue diversity.
On August 26, city council voted to refer Ballot Issue 3A to voters asking for an increase in the sales tax rate from 3% to 3.75% to repair roads, bridges, sidewalks, and medians; address congested intersections; improve and enhance the city’s oldest buildings; and comply with state law by modernizing public safety equipment.
Citizens are invited to learn more about this issue:
