One the many responsibilities of Gillette City Councilman Everett Boss is to serve on the National League of Cites, (EENR) Environment and Natural Resources Steering Committee. Boss used the opportunity recently to voice his opposition to a proposed EENR Resolution regarding the regulation of hydraulic fracturing. Boss said he felt the proposed resolution listed many bullet points as facts, but he feels they are not. Boss cited specifically language referring to seismic danger in relation to fracking. The Gillette Councilman says there is no evidence that seismic activity related to hydraulic fracturing has caused harm either to people or property.
