Oil and Gas Policy Statement
The Board of Trustees adopted an Oil and Gas policy statement. The statement reads, 'The Town of Erie Board of Trustees is committed to protecting the health, safety and welfare of Town residents, visitors and the environment. Oil and gas development and operations are by their nature an industrial activity that causes noise, emissions, traffic, vibrations, visual and other environmental impacts. The Town will use its regulatory powers and the latest technology to ensure oil and gas operators are using all measures possible to prevent and mitigate those impacts. The Town will also work with experts to diminish the adverse impacts of oil and gas development operations in Erie, inform the public of those potential impacts, and take appropriate enforcement action'.
