Broadview Heights residents approved a ban on drilling recently, but Mayor Sam Alai says it could cause problems for the city.
Alai: “The state regulates what goes on in gas and oil drilling. Now that we have something on our books, our charter, that says there should be no gas and oil drilling in the future, that is in direct conflict with the state law. And if we try to stop a gas and oil driller from drilling in the city, they would potentially most likely sue the city.”Read the rest of the report here.
