Gas lease issue rising in Fremont

Stephens Mills, N.Y. — Gas drilling isn’t coming to Fremont yet — but it will be the hot topic at the March board meeting.

Supervisor Carol Burns said after the meeting Tuesday that a political action committee will speak to the board in support of drilling. The committee is from the Steuben County Land Owners Coalition.

Danny Hammond, the town’s code enforcement officer and a member of the land owners coalition, scheduled the presentation. Wednesday he said the committee would provide details as to when the coalition would be approached by a major gas company that would lease acres from coalition members.

“With this meeting, people will be aware what takes place when gas drilling starts. Not if it starts, but when it starts,” he said. “Whether it’s this year or next, I don’t know.”
