Among other issues discussed was the town’s natural gas drilling commission, whose activities have been suspended recently due to the loss of some committee members. Contact has been made with the town of Towanda in Bradford County, PA with an eye to arrange a future visit, but no further movement has been made on that plan. Councilmember Alfred Steppich, however, said he went to visit a compressor station on his own in Slate Hill between Port Jervis and Middletown, and that he was very impressed by how quiet it was once you left the actual compression chamber, where the noise level was deafening.
