Highland supervisors hear complaints about roads

April 11, 2012

JAMES CITY -- Heavy truck traffic to a Marcellus Shale natural gas well near Owl's Nest is spawning more complaints in Highland Township.
Joe Niklas of Sackett and Ken Painter of Pig's Ear Road both complained Wednesday about the dust stirred up by the truck traffic to the well site.
Speaking at a meeting of the Highland Township Board of Supervisors, Niklas said the road leading to his residence is "still dusty" due to the volume of trucks heading to the well site.
"I can't see out my windows," Niklas said.

The group also has encouraged Kane residents to speak up at council meetings. And they have.
