Loveland probably won’t vote on fracking in Nov.

LOVELAND — Voters in Loveland probably won’t be able to vote on whether to ban fracking in the city in November.

City councilors narrowly voted against putting the citizens’ initiative on the ballot Tuesday night because a resident has filed a lawsuit challenging the petition’s signatures.

The Loveland Reporter-Herald reports that five councilors didn’t want to take action until Larry Sarner’s appeal was resolved. But Mayor Cecil Gutierrez and three other council members voted in favor of putting the measure on the ballot now with the understanding that it could be removed if the appeal is successful.

If the appeal fails, a special election could be called to vote on it.

The initiative calls for a two-year ban on hydraulic fracturing while effects on human health and property values are studied.
