Jeffery Robbins has submitted proposed oil and gas regulations; they're almost a direct lift of Boulder County's.   The council may be voting on this, so ATTEND and SPEAK UP!  

Note the earlier start time.  It's the first item on the agenda.

Read regulations for the full flavor.  They're in the agenda packet:   http://www.cityoflafayette.com/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/3192

From Mr. Robbins's Memorandum: " The City’s objective with the amended oil and gas regulations is to protect public health, safety, welfare, and the environment to the MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW."  That is to say, Extraction's profit overrides your children's health and welfare.
