Gas Task Force Meets Tuesday

COUDERSPORT – Why has the “gas boom” been delayed and what does the future hold?

How can communities and businesses take advantage of the economic development potential of shale gas development?

What are the latest gas industry practices for environmental protection, drilling efficiency and business strategies?

Those questions and others will be addressed on Tuesday, Feb. 14, when an educator who has immersed himself in the issues over the past several years presents a program to the Potter County Natural Gas Task Force. The meeting will be held at the Gunzburger Building auditorium in Coudersport at 7 pm and is open to the public.

Guest speaker is Jim Ladlee, director of initiatives at the Marcellus Shale Education & Training Center and executive director for Penn State Extension in Clinton County.

Also on the agenda is an update on many critical issues before the state legislature, including the “impact fee” on shale gas production; new information from the Triple Divide Watershed Coalition and the county’s Water Quality Work Group; and reports on new job training programs, emergency services opportunities and local government/planning issues.

Those planning to attend Tuesday’s meeting are asked to use the Water Street entrance.
