Town Board also recognizes other regulatory and
elected bodies at the state and
federal levels which have legal jurisdiction over these matters, and
Town Board has observed the continuing and
ongoing multi-year study by the New York State
Department of Environmental Conservation and
other agencies and governmental entities as
weigh the pros and cons of high volume
horizontal hydraulic fracturing with no
decisions expected, and
Town Board recognizes the certainty that legal
challenges will be brought against
whatever decisions are ultimately rendered by
DEC and others, leading to judicial decisions
which may change the legislative and regulatory
landscape of this issue, and
the Covert Town Board has observed that some New York municipalities have
expended countless hours and other resources on
pro/con discussions and/or attempts to pass or
pass moratoriums or outright bans on various gas
drilling activities and recognizes all such
attempts will ultimately be decided by
Now therefore be
