SMETHPORT â€“ McKean County is seeking proposals for the use of nearly $540,000 in Marcellus Shale gas well revenue.
Joe DeMott, chairman of the county Board of Commissioners, said Friday the revenue is from the state Act 13 impact fee paid by drillers of Marcellus Shale gas wells.
The county itself will use some of this Act 13 revenue balance, which has built up over a two-year period. However, the bulk of the remaining pot will go for eligible projects throughout the county, DeMott said.
