Keep Fort Collins Great

Background

In November 2010, more than 60 percent of Fort Collins voters agreed to add an additional .85 percent sales tax on purchases to fund basic City services. At that time, the City made a commitment to the public that we would keep you updated on how the money was being spent within the ballot language categories.
