Local citizen group has filed petition with State Gas Commission objecting to lack of timely notice and hearing for Shell drilling permit. The State has postponed issue of the permit for 20 days, but Huerfano Board of County Commissioners go on record stating that they have no intention of objecting to the permit. Grassroots Citizens for Huerfano County continues to plead for more disclosures before the permit is issued. CHC is seeking affirmation that subsequent health and safety issues be addressed and water impact damages be prevented.
