The Keep Fort Collins Great (KFCG) .85 percent sales tax was passed by Fort Collins voters in November 2010 to fund critical services and programs for the community. This .85% dedicated tax will sunset December 31, 2020. On February 5, 2019, City Council referred a ballot measure regarding Keep Fort Collins Great revenue replacement to the April 2, 2019 ballot. Fort Collins voters passed the ballot by 61%.
This measure will continue the .85% tax by increasing the on-going tax rate by .60% and adding a renewable .25% tax through 2030.
The City of Fort Collins uses this important revenue stream for road improvement projects, increased staffing and facilities for our emergency responders, the diverse needs in our Parks and Recreation Department and other community priorities.
