LOVELAND — The Loveland City Council is facing a second lawsuit related to petitions for an initiative to ban fracking in the city.

Protect Our Loveland filed a motion for preliminary injunction on Monday seeking an order that would require the city council to put the initiative to the voters as soon as possible through a special election.

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

The Loveland Reporter-Herald (http://tinyurl.com/q39l37j) reports city councilors narrowly voted against putting the citizens' initiative on the November ballot last month after a resident filed a lawsuit challenging the petition's signatures.
