Thank you to the loyal readers and supporters of The Colorado Independent (2013-2020). The Indy has merged with the new nonprofit Colorado News Collaborative (COLab) on a new mission to strengthen local news in Colorado. We hope you will join us!
“If the group accepted donations and made direct appeals to voters to support or oppose the initiative, then they fall under the requirements of the city charter and should have filed reports with the city."

They organized, collected signatures, won a ruling from a judge, but Protect Our Loveland will likely have to wait and weather more appeals before their petition for a two-year halt on fracking can be put to a vote.
