Light Turnout At Public Hearing on Fracking
November 16 2013

Only a few people showed up on Thursday night, when the Alfred Town Board held a public hearing on extending the one year moratorium on fracking.

The Alfred Town Board will vote on whether to extend the moratorium at the December 12th Town meeting.

In Alfred budget news, Town Supervisor Tom Mansfield says there will be a 2.58 percent increase for those outside the Town, for those inside the Town of Alfred, a 1.70 percent tax increase.
