County expected to adopt ‘impact fees’ on wells

March 18, 2012

SMETHPORT – The McKean County Board of Commissioners is expected to act Tuesday on legislation for “impact fees” for Marcellus Shale natural gas wells.
Commissioners Joe DeMott, Al Pingie and Cliff Lane endorsed the legislation at a previous meeting and are expected to finalize the ordinance Tuesday. The meeting at 10 a.m. at the county courthouse in Smethport is open to the public.
The legislation for the “impact fees” has been approved on the state level. To take part in the program, counties must adopt their own ordinances by April.
