A proposed sales tax to help fund a new shelter for the Larimer Humane Society will not be on the November ballot.

According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan: An agreement between the Humane Society and Larimer County on the ownership and operation of the proposed building would not be completed in time for county commissioners to refer the matter to voters.

Judy Calhoun, executive director of the Humane Society said.“We want to move forward. People understand the need and are very supportive of the work we do.

The commissioners said they understand the humane society’s need for new facilities, but the details of an operating agreement would have to be worked out before the county could put a measure on the ballot.
