Notice of Claim served to Town of Highland regarding fracking ban


October 12, 2012

Town of Highland supervisor Andrew Boyar has confirmed that the town has been served with a Notice of Claim (NOC) from the Highland Field and Stream Club, Inc. in response to the town’s passing of Local Law 3 on July 10, 2012, which bans heavy industrial activities such as natural gas extraction. The NOC is a precursor to legal action, which may or may not ensue, according to Boyar. The matter has been referred to town attorney Michael Davidoff. It is standard practice not to comment on any form of litigation said Boyar. The town’s regular monthly meeting will be held on October 16 at 7 p.m. at the town hall in Eldred.
