Ohio Community Shifts From Banning Drilling to Voting in Favor of Pipeline

From the Tribune Chronicle:
NILES - City Council voted unanimously during Wednesday's regular meeting to allow a Houston-based driller to use a portion of city land for the installation of a pipeline.
Halcon Field Services was given access to about 60 feet of land near Salt Springs Road along the Niles Greenway Bike Path. It will stretch into Weathersfield Township, officials said.
Niles is one of several Trumbull County communities that was given a proposal by the driller for what is expected to be a 14-mile long pipeline stretching from Vienna to Lordstown.
Halcon will pay the city a total of $1,462 for use of the property, according to Mark Hess, the city's engineering, grants and development coordinator.
