Supervisors hold countywide town hall on fracking
King George County plans its countywide town hall meeting on fracking at 7 p.m. June 12 at King George High School. The Board of Supervisors plans to invite representatives from several agencies to make presentations, including the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy, the Department of Environmental Quality, Shore Exploration and Production Corp. and the Southern Environmental Law Center.
Supervisor Chairman Joe Grzeika said state agencies will regulate the permitting and drilling process, and that it’s up to counties to stipulate whatever restrictions they deem proper in their special exception process.
