Gates Mills has organized a committee of regional players and residents to deal with possibility of fracking in the village, after a year of debate over drilling gas wells.
Gates Mills Village Council, with backing from Mayor Shawn Riley, founded the Regional Commission to Study and Address Oil and Gas Well Drilling late last year. The group of more than 40 has been meeting since January.
Members include the Lyndhurst Fire Chief Mike Carroll, Gates Mills Fire Chief Tom Robinson, Mayfield school board member George Hughes, Pepper Pike Mayor Richard Bain and Bentleyville Councilwomen Karen Esposito and Kathleen Hale.
The commission aims to develop a formal plan to tackle fracking in and around eastern Cuyahoga County, as cities grapple with the lack of local control over drilling regulations.Read more by clicking here.
