Feb 7: Public Hearing on airport fracking

The citizens of Allegheny County indirectly own 9,200 acres at the region’s main airport site, but only about half is used for runways and building.  County Executive Rich FitzGerald is a strong proponent of leasing some of the land for shale gas drilling, and negotiations are ongoing with Consol Energy.  Allegheny County Council will hold a belated public hearing February 7, with leasing at the County airport also in the mix.

The hearing will be chaired by County Councilman Robert Macey, and will air opinions on the lease of mineral rights at the Pittsburgh International Airport.  For those planning to speak at the hearing, you must register. 
You will get THREE MINUTES to speak.
Only Allegheny County residents can speak.

 6 p.m. in the Sewall Center International room at Robert Morris University, 119 Campus Drive in Moon Township, PA 15108

If you can't attend the hearing, please email your opinion to County Council. You might also  tell them that We the People deserve more than just ONE public hearing on this issue:
