ELMIRA---(WENY) Local officials in Elmira say they aren't ready for hydrofracking in the Southern Tier. During an Elmira City Council workshop Thursday, Elmira City Mayor Sue Skidmore said they aren't prepared for fracking permits to be issued in the Spring because they simply don't have all the information they need.
This, after Mayor Skidmore asked officials to look at increasing the budget for HAZMAT Incident Response Services to Chemung County for $25,000.00, all to cover any additional costs resulting from fracking. The mayor also suggested looking at Bradford County's Environmental Information.
