Debate, but No Decision on Gas-Drilling Moratorium
|Public concern about natural-gas drilling was expressed at two forums today: the county Board of Representatives' monthly meeting on upper Main Street, and a forum this evening at Oneonta High School.|
But the county board made no move to either study the moratorium idea or to act on it.
Some 30 people attended the morning meeting; 300 were at the evening one.
In the morning, Don Barber, Democratic candidate for the 51st state Senate District, spoke in favor of a moratorium.
In the evening, incumbent Jim Seward, R-Milford, who has declined to support a moratorium, vowed the process going forward will be fully in the public eye.
For a full report, read this week's Freeman's Journal, on the newsstands in downtown Cooperstown by noon Thursday.
