New 2014 utility rates will still be among the lowest in the state

City Information

Some Longmont utility rates are scheduled to increase next year, and the new residential rates are listed below. Many of these increases were scheduled years before the September flood, but some are being instituted to help pay for repair and replacement of infrastructure damaged in that flood. Current Effective Dec 1, 2013 Storm drainage user charge: $7.77/month $13.05/month (increase for flood-related construction) Current Effective Jan 1, 2014 Sanitation rate: 96-gallon container- $12.68/month $14.14/month 48-gallon container - $ 8.97/month $ 9.65/month Parks and greenway maintenance fee: $1/month $4/month ($2 through 2016 is for flood-related construction) Sewer rate: Service fee $8.50/month $9.50/month Volume fee $3.46/1,000 gal $ 4.11/1,000 gal Volume fee is gallons per month The City also is considering electric rate adjustments for 2014. The proposed changes include an average electric rate increase of 5 percent in 2014 that is expected to remain in effect, with no additional increases, through 2016. Proposed electric rates will be presented to the city council for first reading on November 12 and second reading on December 17. It is important to note that even with this proposed increase, Longmont’s electric rates for all customer classes will remain among the lowest in Colorado. In fact, Longmont residential rates would need to increase approximately 50 percent to reach the state average.

Video Illustrates Longmont Flood Damage

A 20-minute video produced by the City of Longmont and the Longmont Channel that highlights the damage caused by the September flood is available online at www.ci.longmont.co.us/ news/pr/2013/floodvideo.htm Hosted by Longmont Public Works and Natural Resources Director, Dale Rademacher, and Longmont Police Commander Jeff Satur, the video takes a deeper look at areas that the average resident cannot see or find. Many areas around the City are fenced off for safety reasons and the public cannot access. The video provides an eye-opening and revealing view of washed out bridges, destroyed trails, aerial footage of flood waters and a summation of the cost and time needed to repair all the flood damage. “What took the City of Longmont 20 years to build, mother nature destroyed in one day,” Rademacher says at one point in the video. Longmont estimates that the flood caused about $148 million in total damages and Rademacher provides a comprehensive tour along the St. Vrain River and Lefthand Creek. An overview of Longmont flood recovery is available online at www.ci.longmont.co.us/flood-info/index.htm.

Residents Urged to Sign Up for Emergency Notification System

Winter/Spring 2014 | www.ci.longmont.co.us

If we can’t reach you, we can’t alert you! If you have a landline telephone, that number is automatically registered with the City’s emergency notification service and you don’t need to do anything. If you would like to register a cell phone number, alternate phone number or email address, visit http://www.ci.longmont.co.us/ police/massnotification.htm or call 303-651-8566. Don’t be caught off guard in an emergency.

Outdoor Warning Tests Begin in April

Longmont 2014 average total monthly utility bill compared to 2013 average utility bills of other cities * receive electricity from Xcel Energy

Every year from April through August, the City of Longmont tests the outdoor emergency warning system the first Monday of each month at 10 am. Other than for testing, the system will be used only to notify the community when action should be taken. The sirens are for OUTDOOR warnings, although you might hear a nearby siren indoors. If you hear the siren and it isn’t 10 am on the first Monday of the month, you should immediately seek shelter inside and tune to a local television or radio station to learn more about the nature of the emergency. Comcast channel 8 and radio station KOA 850- AM are good choices. Please DO NOT CALL 911 when you hear the siren unless you have a real emergency. It is critical to keep the 911 lines open for people who require immediate assistance. Residents are encouraged to use battery-operated weather radios that activate automatically during severe weather. For more information, contact the City of Longmont Office of Emergency Management at 303-651-8438 or email donna.platt@ ci.longmont.co.us.

Please remember to keep your water meter pit cleared of snow.

If you can’t easily walk to your meter from the street or alley, your meter reader can’t either. When you keep a path to your meter clear, it helps the reader more quickly and easily obtain an actual read, which keeps bills accurate and costs low. If you have questions about keeping meter reading areas cleared or obtaining automated meter reading equipment, call Longmont Power & Communications at 303-651-8386.

Submit Photos for City’s Web Home Page

The City’s new website will debut in early 2014 and we need photos that illustrate our fantastic community. Below is an early version of the home page design. As you can see images of Longmont will fill the screen and serve as the background for the home page. The home page background image will rotate every time someone visits the website so we are in need of photos that will help create a positive image for the city and work well with our new layout. Submit your photos to the city’s Flickr group at www.flickr. com/groups/longmontcolorado and add a description with the tags “Longmont Home Page”. In addition, send an e-mail to cityofLongmont@ci.longmont.co.us providing the addresses to the images that you wish to submit. Make sure to read the disclaimers which gives the city permission to use your work for marketing purposes. We will be contacting you to let you know that we are interested in using your photo. Once the site launches, visit the webpage often to see if we’re using your photos. If your photo is selected you will receive a Longmont “goodie bag” filled with Longmont treats.

Congratulations! As part of the November 5, 2013, election, Longmont’s voters approved funding for the full development of the City’s broadband services network making Longmont Colorado’s first gigabit city. Plans for a full deployment of broadband services, including high speed Internet, to City businesses and residents are now underway. Prior to the start of construction, the selection of the vendor to conduct design and engineering services for the City’s broadband system will need to occur. Revenue bonds to fund the system build-out will be issued and materials for construction purchased. These steps will be completed as quickly as possible. Construction will occur in phases and it is anticipated that it will take approximately 3 years to be completed. Updated information regarding the progress of construction and estimated service availability dates will be posted on the LPC website as it becomes available. Beginning in early 2014, look for information on how residents and businesses alike will be able to pre-register for services. The City of Longmont is excited for the opportunity to offer broadband services for businesses and residents. Stay tuned for notifications regarding sign up and connection capabilities as they become available. For ongoing updates about the development of Longmont’s broadband services, visit http://www.ci.longmont. co.us/lpc/TC/index.htm and stay alert for announcements through traditional and online media channels.

Did you know about Julia Coffin?

Winter/Spring 2014 | www.ci.longmont.co.us/rec

Julia Ann Dunbar Coffin, the matriarch of Sandstone Ranch, was born on Dec 2, 1844, in Otsego County, New York. Three days after Christmas 1865, on Dec 28 at her home in DeKalb, Illinois, Julia, barely 21 years old, married Morse H. Coffin. Together the newlyweds set off west in the spring of 1866 on an adventurous journey by train and wagon across the Great Plains through Indian lands to Morse’s homestead in Colorado Territory.

How to Get to Sandstone Ranch Visitors Center Sandstone Ranch Visitors Center is located just east of Longmont on Highway 119. The turn-off for the District Park and Visitors Center is one mile east of the Intersection of Highway 119 and Weld County Road 1. Drive south on Sandstone Drive (next to the football and soccer fields) and follow the directional signs to the Visitors Center/ Trailhead parking lot. Follow the walking trail down to the Visitors Center. Handicapped parking is available in front of the Visitors Center.

In a log cabin nestled near sandstone cliffs on the St. Vrain River, Julia gave birth to their first child, a girl, Geneva, on Oct 21, 1866. Family reasons were credited for Julia’s return to her home in DeKalb in April of 1868. But perhaps the hardships of pioneer living and the continuing presence of marauding Indians made her want to return to more safe and familiar surroundings. In August she bore a son, Merton, and by November, Morse arrived to reunite with his growing family. They were listed on the 1870 census as citizens of DeKalb, Il, though by 1872 the Coffins returned to stay in Colorado. Two more sons, Adelbert Byron in 1874 and Morse Harry in 1877 were born at the Sandstone homestead. Her last child, another girl, Julia Etta, born in September of 1883 completed the family at about the same time the main house was built. Her husband Morse would later write - “Up to this time Mrs. Coffin thinks she has had her share of pioneering but she has stood it well and done her full share toward building up the home.” Visit online for more information about the history of Sandstone Ranch Visitors Center.

ONGMONT — Every Independence Day, the biggest backyard party in town can be found at Thompson Park. “I’m all about the parades and stuff, but this is way better,” said Shelley Kunselman, who hit the park at 7 a.m. to grab a shady picnic spot. “I see a bunch of people I know, chat with them, and then make the rounds again in about an hour. And you can’t beat the music.” Or the heat. Temperatures rose through the 90s as the annual Longmont Symphony Orchestra concert and July 4 community picnic went on. Most families hugged the shade of a tree or an awning; two members of the Longmont Chorale briefly passed out from the warmth. “No rain this year,” opening singer Dan Wright told the crowd with a chuckle. “Remember last year?” Without the showers that washed the park in 2010 and almost canceled the event, patriotic decorations had free reign to take over every available space and table. Tri-color strawberries, with white

_ó pÅçíí oçÅÜ~í içåÖãçåí qáãÉëJ`~ää LONGMONT — Colorado Senate President Brandon Shaffer announced Monday night via YouTube that he will run for the 4th Congressional District in 2012. The video shows Shaffer addressing a group of friends and family during a backyard party on the Fourth of July. “A lot of you know that we have been considering a very important decision in our family,” Shaffer said. “Be- Shaffer fore we announced our decision to the general public, we thought we’d bring a group of very close friends and family and neighbors and people who have been very supportive over the years together to share the decision that we’ve made with you first. “Tomorrow (Tuesday), I am going to announce that I am an official candidate for Congress.” The announcement was met with cheers by the crowd and a teasing admonition to “Get back to the food” by Shaffer. Shaffer, D-Longmont, had considered running in 2008 but stepped aside for the candidacy of Betsy Markey, who defeated incumbent Republican Marilyn Musgrave. After current U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, a Republican, defeated Markey in her bid for re-election, Shaffer’s name was discussed as a possible challenger. The 4th CD has been at the center of a re-districting battle by the Legislature, with the exact lines to be considered by a judge this fall.

chocolate and blue sprinkles. Cookies shaped like the continental United States. Even a small white “Old Glory” Christmas tree, decorated to the hilt with wood-

block flags, “USA” cutouts and an Uncle Sam teddy bear, among other star-spangled touches. “Everyone likes it,” said the tree’s owner, Kathy Howell of

Erie. “I am starting to reach saturation, but for now, I just keep adding things.” Some keep adding people as well. For Evelyn Josephsohn, this came in the middle of her family reunion, with 25 people descending on Longmont from as far away as Montana. “This is quite a special Fourth of July for us,” she said, as the family set up its picnic table, entered in the afternoon’s contest as “Red, White and Balloons,” a name thought up by Josephsohn’s granddaughter. It’s also the young ones, she noted, who were responsible for the family’s picnic site: as close to the cannon for the 1812 Overture as possible. That same cannon made a few picnickers jump during the national anthem, as a mischievous Kim Knake set it off in time for “The bombs bursting in air ...” “There seems to be a quick trigger around here,” joked former Mayor Roger Lange, a master of ceremonies for the afternoon.

_ó m~ã jÉääëâçÖ içåÖãçåí qáãÉëJ`~ää DENVER — One gay man videotaped for the project shares that his extended family reacted to his news of testing positive for HIV by asking him to use a plastic plate, cup and utensils at mealtime. Another subject, a 14-year-old boy infected with HIV at birth by his mother, answers a question about future dating. He thinks it could work “if she could just accept me for who I am rather than what I have.”

Their testimonies now live among 173 other interviews recorded so far by The Positive Project, a Denver nonprofit organization dedicated to getting personal stories with information about HIV to those infected, affected and at risk through a free, digital, online archive. Tony Miles and Dawn Shearer, both mental health professionals,

launched the project in 2000. Years of privately listening to the testimonies of HIV-positive clients convinced them that a related video archive could be another resource in fighting the HIV/AIDS pandemic, which hit the United States 30 years ago this summer. Patient confidentiality prevented them from sharing their clients’ stories. “But anyone who participates in the project needs to be prepared for the fact that clips of their interview could show up on NBC Nightly News,” Miles said. The duo got interviewees through word of mouth and by
