Hydrofracking...

At Wednesday's [June 15, 2011] New Hartford Town Board meeting, a Public Hearing was held on a proposed local law "imposing a moratorium on the activity known as hydraulic fracturing and/or hydrofracking in the Town of New Hartford".

Residents from New Hartford and neighboring towns spoke against hydrofracking and in favor of the proposed moratorium; no one appeared in opposition to the moratorium.

At the conclusion of the Public Hearing, the New Hartford Town Board unanimously voted to adopt the local law that will impose a 6-month moratorium on hydrofracking in the Town of New Hartford.

Here is the moratorium adopted by the New Hartford Town Board. Below is the videotape of the Public Hearing:
