Proposed 2021 Budget

October 5, 2020
Dear Board of Trustees and High Plains Library District Taxpayers:

We are pleased to present the proposed budget for the High Plains Library District for 2021. This proposed budget will support the High Plains Library District in achieving its mission and vision by providing the necessary funding for the operation of the libraries, the outreach department, the public computer centers, and administration and support services.

The proposed budget consists of:

► Summary schedules listing revenues, expenditures, beginning and ending fund balances.
► The 5-year Capital Improvement Program.

The 2021 proposed budgeted revenues have decreased 15.68% from the 2020 budget. The 2021 proposed budget includes funds for a library/ innovation center in Greeley, a larger location for the Kersey Library, and for a quality level of library services.

The major source of revenue for the District is derived from a 3.177 mill levy applied to the assessed value of portions of Weld and Boulder County properties.

Any interested elector within such High Plains Library District may inspect the proposed budget and file or register any objections thereto at any time prior to the final adoption of the budget scheduled for Monday December 7, 2020 at the regular meeting of the High Plains Library District Board of Trustees.
