Preparing for Natural Gas Development: Understanding Impacts and Protecting Public Assets
Sullivan County reports on what Towns can do to prepare for gas drilling.
Supervisor Jim Goldstein, Lebanon Township, Madison County, NY
Gas drillers have been operating in the Town of Lebanon since the late ‘90’s, and in recent years the pace of drilling has accelerated. About 55 wells have been drilled in the Township, and another 30 are in various stages of development. Supervisor Jim Goldstein has had to deal with virtually every issue that can arise when drillers come to town.
New York towns have control
Even though towns can’t control drilling procedures, they can enforce zoning laws that may prohibit gas drilling operations within all or part of a town’s jurisdiction. Letter to the Editor by Bruce Ferguson. November, 2010.
