Confusion Follows Rumored RUMA Agreement
Read the whole article here.NEGLEY - Chesapeake Energy has not sought a new road use maintenance agreement (RUMA) in Middleton Township but has applied for a permit for a new well, Township Fiscal Officer Bob Chapman said Monday.Residents Ray and Tracy Barrow turned out for the trustee meeting to say they were trying to verify whether a RUMA had been requested. The Barrows were wondering if what they heard was a rumor, and residents Tom and Susan Cunningham also said they had heard the same.Chapman said that is not the case, but that the township received a letter from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) about a month ago advising that Chesapeake applied for a permit to drill an oil and gas well on township property, specifically, in section 11, which is in the vicinity of Negley, and accessible from state Route 170."There was no indication of a RUMA to be issued," he said.
