Wellsburg City, WVA Rescinds Gas Drilling Ordinance

WELLSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — Natural gas drilling in Wellsburg is legal again.
City Manager Mark Henne says council rescinded an ordinance passed in May with a 5-3 vote Tuesday.
Wellsburg was among four cities that banned Marcellus shale gas drilling within their boundaries.
New Martinsville is planning to repeal its ban, too. A final vote is set for Sept. 5.
