Change is the only constant in life. Change is inevitable--and is often perceived as threatening by some. Here in Morris, we are not immune to change. We do not live in an insular world--never changing, never growing. Despite the hopes and wishes of many, Time does not stop here.
All around Otsego County towns and villages are making preparations to meet the threat of gas drilling head on. We have heard recently that the eyes of many of these towns and villages--and the county itself--are, in fact, turned toward Morris, hoping that we can recognize the urgency of this situation and the importance of taking immediate action to protect the health and safety of our citizens. Without the protective measures being implemented in municipalities throughout our county, it will be "open season" for the drilling industry here in Morris.
