Message to Residents of the Town & Village of Morris

Everyone who lives here in Morris should view this video. 

Is this to be our future?  Will our narrow valley corridors amplify the sounds from drilling operations and compressor stations?  Will the airborne contaminants be trapped in our valleys?  When our property values diminish, can we expect that our property taxes would be reduced accordingly?  Is it already too late to sell out and move elsewhere?  With the Morris Central School situated on two major state highways, has the town board calculated the risks to children who travel this corridor to and from school?  Are the leaders on our town board simply paralyzed by fear and afraid to take a stand to protect us, when neighboring towns have already taken bold steps to protect the citizens of their communities by exercising home rule and implementing land use regulations?  Or has the Morris Town Board been sold a bill of goods by the pro-gas coalitions and the gas companies?  Should we be asking ourselves whether any member of our town board is expecting to profit as the result of leasing their property for drilling (as does our district's county rep)?  Which local business expects to reap the greatest profits when/if drilling comes to Morris?  Will the citizens of Morris sit idly by and simply allow ruthless corporations to reap their profits at the expense of the people?  Or do we care enough about our children, our parents, our grandchildren, our grandparents--and ourselves--to stand up and take action now?

I'll be here at home awaiting your answers to these questions.  Merry Christmas!

Life next to a glycol dehydration station in NE Pennsylvania. They had a blow off recently at this location. Neighbors complain of constant noise and vibrations in their homes, enough to rattle and move pictures on the wall. Say they were lied to about the extent of this operation. Worry about depreciation of property values.
