The Fox Township Supervisors discussed Marcellus gas drilling in the township during their recent meeting and according to supervisor Mike Keller, the township is in the preliminary stages of working on a zoning ordinance to help place restrictions on future drilling in the township.
Responding to a question from an area resident regarding the number of Marcellus wells in the Boone Mountain area, Supervisor Randy Gradizzi stated that he believed there are about 27 more wells scheduled to be drilled in that area.
Keller added that the drilling is not going to go away.
Santa and Mrs. Claus kicked off Light Up Night in Kersey on Friday evening as they arrived in style at the Fox Township Community Park inside a colorful pick-up truck painted in the holiday colors of white with red and green stripes. The truck was situated on a trailer pulled by Dick Cooneyâ€™s Peterbilt logging truck. The Grinch kept an eye on the festivities as he was perched on the back of the trailer. Youngsters had the opportunity to visit with the Clauses, as Santaâ€™s elves distributed bags filled with candy, a coloring book and other goodies.
