Trumbull County Residents and Officials Frustrated at Lack of Local Control Over Injection Wells

Excessive truck traffic is one
concern for Trumbull County residents
From Business Journal Daily:
Citizens and public officials in Trumbull County are looking for ways to bring oversight of Class II injection wells back to the local level. 
During a meeting held Wednesday by Trumbull County Engineer Randy Smith, and attended by county commissioners and about 50 residents, concerns were raised about safety and responsibility, particularly as it relates to the use of roads and bridges. 
"The engineers office will not take a position either for or against oil-related activity," Smith began. "We're simply here to look out for our roads and bridges." 
The meeting was scheduled in response to complaints received by the engineer’s office concerning injection wells. In one such case, residents in Vienna complained of increased truck traffic in front of Mathews High School, which they say poses a risk to safety. 
"We get questions from parents wondering why we haven't objected to the amount of traffic in front of our high school," says Mary Swift, a Vienna resident and member of the Mathews School Board.
