ST. MARYS â€“ A number of area students headed off to college or other postsecondary education will have some help thanks to scholarships awarded through the Elk County Community Foundation (ECCF).
Students from Elk County and the surrounding area were awarded 87 scholarships totaling over $100,600 through the foundation, which helps individuals and groups achieve their philanthropic goals by assisting with the creation of endowments and other funding, and then awarding that funding locally to individuals, nonprofit organizations and others.
Recently the Fox Township Supervisors approved a request for a conditional-use permit for EOG Resources to install three additional gas wells in the Boone Mountain area.
The company's original request was to install a total of five new gas wells; however, two of the sites must be relocated in order to meet the township setback requirements.
Their approval of the request included the stipulation that the Fox Twp. Zoning Enforcement Officer Robin Singer be permitted on the well sites to inspect them, without interference, to assure the sites are meeting all township zoning requirements.
