The latest revisions to the gas well development ordinance should be released Friday afternoon, when Tuesday’s agenda packet is posted on the city’s website.
I plan on reading the materials and writing a weekend paper to help our readers know what’s coming. The City Council’s work session Tuesday was less of a discussion of “what” more than it was a discussion of “how” the public hearing will go on Tuesday.
However, city officials are planning a briefing on the changes Monday. Council member John Ryan typically holds “town hall” style meeting once a month — usually at the North Branch Library — to give residents a chance to get more in-depth information about a current issue or share a concern. Ryan has moved this month’s meeting to City Hall and will get help from Darren Groth, head of the city’s gas well inspection division, with a presentation on the changes.
Residents will be able to ask questions of either the elected officials or city staff present at the briefing, in order to better prepare for Tuesday’s public hearing.
More to come as I get it.
