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 3.555 mill levy to support operations, having retired the bond measure to build the 3rd Street location in 2011, four years early.

2019 Budget Highlights

Revenue

The Clearview Library District’s budget for 2019 is $3,753,791, supported almost entirely by general property tax.

We’ve seen a temporary increase in 2019 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

The largest expenses in the 2019 remain the salaries of 12 full-time and 36 part-time staff members, as well as staff benefits and physical materials.
