Residents vent concerns with wells, construction

Several residents spoke up at Monday night's City Council meeting to express frustration with Marcellus shale wells near residential property as well as construction in the city. Paul Fleming, who lives in the Haney Hill area, described his life as a living hell since a shale well was installed just over a half mile from his house. "I moved out there for peace and quiet," Fleming said. "The jake brake noise is so great, I can no longer open the windows in my house. The noise and vibration in the middle of the night is so great that I can't go back to sleep. The helicopter noise is just unbelievable."
