HYDROFRACKING IN THE TOWN OF RUSH
A PUBLIC FORUM
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at 7:00 PM
If hydrofracking were to come to Rush, how would it affect the character of our town? Our roads and traffic? Our private wells? This is an issue the Town Board has agreed to consider.
All are welcome to this free forum that will provide information on the potential impact of hydofracking in Rush and steps that might be taken to protect the community.
