Look beneath the surface of what is said by city officials. They often camouflage what's really behind a decision and pick the most broadly accepted explanation. Certain members of Longmont's City Council are notorious in this regard. No one should accept that Erie's action was "out of the blue." Hostility to Boulder County is nothing new. More recent ideological drifts to the hard right suggest behind the scenes joint efforts to reduce Boulder County influence.

Erie, Lafayette, Longmont residents especiallly, look deeper. Demand an early council agenda item. Make information requests of your city staffs. Do Open Records Requests of council member emails. And expect that developers of all varieties have already had private input into this issue.

You have used this precise language in commenting on other articles, and not just articles for this newspaper. You may not have a (financial) interest in Frack Nation, but there's no doubt you have many interests in perpetuating toxic fossil fuel extraction and dirty energy.

"A review by The Denver Post of enterprise-zone tax credits given from 2004 through 2010 showed that 21 companies sought tax credits of more than $1 million in a given year on 44 occasions. All but three of the companies were in the business of refining, transporting, drilling or mining oil, gas or coal, The Post's review found.",,,

"The legislation includes a provision that allows an appeal for large projects to the state's economic-development commission seeking a waiver of the $1 million cap on enterprise-zone tax credits that a company can claim annually."

A loophole wide enough to drive a horizontal frack through. Show some real courage and exclude oil and gas from ALL tax breaks/credits. They don't need them; they greed them.

Cynical ploy. Scott hopes that cash-strapped students and parents will jump at anything that seems to offer relief. Send to the kill committee on arrival.

And your point, Dan? Are you suggesting than those who maintain a permanent residence in Boulder County, but who are stationed overseas in the military or work overseas in the private sector should not be allowed to vote at home?
