Does the majority oppose drilling? In Callicoon is there any way to find out?
Legislator Cindy Gieger, however, was one farmer who spoke strongly, as she has in the past, against drilling.
Judging by past experience, it is unlikely that the committee will change the proposed plan to reflect the majority view at the meeting that drilling should be banned, and the invitation for industrial activity to move into the town will likely remain.
The next step in the process is for the committee to present the plan to the town board, which then must hold another public hearing on it within 90 days.
