Representatives from Seneca Resources answered questions posed by St. Marys City Council on Monday evening in regard to future seismic testing taking place in the Taft Road area.
Mike Brock, a Taft Road resident, approached council during their last work session about concerns he and his neighbors have had with letters they've received from Blueline Geo about the testing. Brock requested council look into the matter and per his request council reached out to Seneca.
According to Brock, Blueline Geo representatives went door-to-door requesting personal information from residents along with permission to access their property as part of the testing. The residents are being offered monetary compensation for testing on their property.
Brock stated he is concerned over potential property damage incurred during testing. He inquired as to what obligations the city has to its residents in such a matter.
