Council to weigh resident’s petition efforts, emergency powers to change Boulder’s charter

"Direct placement by elected officials is one way to get on the ballot. Petitions are typically the other. One resident initiative, No Eviction Without Representation, has already qualified. Two other groups are still vying for signatures. But, as reported last week, even if they get the required amount, their efforts won’t be certified by the city clerk.
That means that the only remaining road to voters runs through council. On Tuesday, members will discuss what to do. It’s unlikely any decisions will be made; that will likely happen Aug. 18, councilman Bob Yates said on Monday.
Tuesday will probably be a 'preliminary discussion on what our options might be,' Yates said."
