New Martinsville, WV Repeals Ordinance on Gas Exploration

August 16
City Repeals Ban
New Martinsville City Council unanimously passed the second and final reading of a measure to repeal an ordinance prohibiting natural gas exploration and gathering activities within city limits during a special council meeting Tuesday afternoon.

Now that the ban is lifted, council is expected to revisit the issue. Recorder Bonnie Shannon indicated they will perhaps now look at drawing up specific guidelines for such activity within the city. “Now it has opened everyone’s eyes,” she said.
