Proposed Fracking Waste Ban Ordinance

The Special Town Meeting for discussion and possible vote on proposed “Ordinance Prohibiting the Storage, Disposal or Use of Waste from Oil and Gas Exploration or Extraction Activities, or any Derivative Thereof, in the Town of Redding, Connecticut” set for Monday, January 8, 2018 was cancelled due to weather conditions and a fire sprinkler system malfunction at Town Hall.  A new date for a Special Town Meeting on the original two items on the 1/8/18 agenda (funding for plant upgrades at Redding Wastewater Treatment Plant and proposed Fracking Waste Ban Ordinance) will be set by the Board of Selectmen at their meeting on Monday, January 22, 2018.  Information regarding the proposed ordinance will also be presented at that meeting.
