Public hearing tonight on Freeville drilling moratorium

The Town of Dryden passed a ban on gas drilling back in August, but there are two places where that ban doesn't apply: the villages of Dryden and Freeville. The ban works through zoning, and the villages have their own zoning, so villages have to craft their own solutions.

Tonight, the Village of Freeville will have a public hearing at Village Hall, "Re: Local Law #6 of 2011: Resolution by the Village Board of Trustees Regarding Natural Gas Drilling". My understanding is that the proposal is for a moratorium on development.
