GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Groups that rely on Garfield County sales taxes are hurting because of a 2010 court ruling that required the county to refund nearly $4 million to Noble Energy.

The courts ruled the company overpaid taxes on materials used for drilling.

According to the Glenwood Springs Post Independent, the ruling has had a major impact on the Garfield County Public Library District, the county emergency communications authority and other municipalities.

A spokesman for Noble Energy Inc., did not return a phone call seeking comment Tuesday.
