Boulder, Weld counties go head to head on local control over oil and gas

November 20, 2014

Boulder and Weld counties went head to head Thursday over whether there is enough local control over the oil and gas industry.

Boulder County Commissioner Elise Jones and Weld County Commissioner Barbara Kirkmeyer volleyed questions from members of the governor's oil and gas task force back and forth.

Kirkmeyer told the task force that as the location of roughly 80 percent of the state's active oil and gas drilling sites, Weld County understands that burdensome regulations could affect the state's industry significantly.
