AVON — The Avon Town Board is considering placing a ban on High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing.
Deliberation continues about the issues that the town of Avon faces regarding High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing, (HVHF).
“I would really like to not see it, (HVHF), coming here,” said David LeFeber, Town of Avon Supervisor.
According to the town of Avon’s Attorney, James Campbell, with the moratorium no longer in place, if the town of Avon wants to do something to protect against High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing the only option is to put some sort of ban in place.
The next step is for the board to decide what type of ban they would be interested in.
“I hope the board takes the route of thoughtful planning culminating in immediate action to ban HVHF in the Town of Avon,” said Chuck Morgan, former member of the Avon Town Moratorium.
Avon made national headlines when after enacting a temporary moratorium Lenape Resources filed a lawsuit, which was dismissed, against the municipality,
Not all board members were present at Thursday night’s meeting, therefore further deliberation will continue at the next Avon Town Board meeting scheduled for July 25.
