An actual law, an ordinance, beyond just words in a resolution. Citrus is the latest of many Florida counties to ban fracking, including Madison.
Commissioners Dennis Damato, Ronald Kitchen, Joe Meek, Scott Adams, and Scott Carnahan unanimously passed a ban-fracking ordinance. The ordinance was amended to include all the county, both incorporated and non-incorporated areas, skillfully inserted by the able and prepared county attorney Denise A. Dymond Lyn.
That article continues with pictures of many of those involved, including WWALS members Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson, Jim Tatum, and Harriett Heywood (pictured above). In WWALS territory, Hamilton and Suwannee Counties have passed resolutions against fracking. Maybe soon they’ll follow Madison County and now Citrus and pass an ordinance.
Georgia counties so far have done nothing. Maybe they should wake up to the shale basin that underlies south Georgia as well as north Florida. WWALS member Alton Burns spoke about that to the Thomas County, GA Commission 4 December 2014, but so far they have done nothing.
