Finance

The Clearview Library District is a library district formed under Colorado Library Law  (CRS 24-90-101 et seq) in 1985. The district is not financially connected with any other library, school, or town, and is funded through dedicated voter-approved mill levies or bond measures by way of residential and commercial property taxes.

Each year, the Library Board-approved mill levy is certified by the Library Director to Weld County. Our district is currently funded by a 3.546 mill levy to support operations, having retired the bond measure to build the 3rd Street location in 2011, four years early.

2020 Budget Highlights

Revenue

The Clearview Library District’s budget for 2020 is $5,151,763, supported almost entirely by general property tax.

We’ve seen a temporary increase in 2020 revenue due in large part to the assessed value of oil and gas, which will be transferred largely to reserves for future capital needs of the district.

Expenses

Consistent with years past, the majority of expenses (57%) for the Clearview Library District center on staff salaries and related items, including health insurance and employee retirement.

Outside of staff-related expenses, the 2020 budget includes more than $500,000 for capital outlays, which includes building improvements, and furniture, hardware, and equipment replacements.
