If Longmont residents had personal or sensitive documents ruined as a result of flooding, they can bring those documents to the City of Longmont’s next Shredding Event on October 12. Longmont residents should set those personal documents aside, let them dry and bring them to the Waste Diversion Center at 140 Martin St. between 9 am and 2 pm on October 12. Residents must bring their Longmont utility bill showing the waste management fee. Call 303-651-8416 for more information.
The Longmont Community Foundation has established the St. Vrain Flooding Relief Fund. It is designed to provide financial resources to charitable organizations that are involved in the relief and rebuilding efforts in the St. Vrain Valley related to the September 2013 flood.
The 12 member selection committee will review each request and make its recommendations quickly. The grant application is purposely brief because our intent is to not make it burdensome for those organizations that are helping our community recover. 100% of funds received will be distributed and a final report of the distributions will be available on our website after the funds have been expended from the St. Vrain Flooding Relief Fund.
