The Dansville town Planning Board hammered out its road use agreement Monday night and called for the town board to pass a six-month moratorium on the natural gas extraction process called hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.

Board members spoke about the need to make sure the town was prepared for the possibility of fracking in the next few years by having road use agreements and site plan regulations in place.

“Do we want to make a recommendation to the board to put a moratorium on so we’re not getting applications for use before we get everything in place? I don’t know that it would hurt anything rather than being flat footed and out in the cold because we’re not ready,” Planning Board Chairman Paul Sick asked during the meeting.

The move to recommend a fracking moratorium to the town board was unanimously approved by the planning board.
