Reminds me of gas and electric aggregation, not really a bargain.

EP has lost their mind. Along with the nuts that are running the place. My answer is NO...and don't bother or come knocking on my door...bunch of morons.

If the town wants to lease ground that isn't theirs, they better be prepared for a few law suits. I would not want my property leased for a gas well if I lived in the city. Sounds like something they would do in the "commonwealth" This is not something that the majority can vote to do. If the majority could vote private property usage there would be a few slumlords run out of town. This gas boom, while good for the country has really made a lot of politicians glassy eyed, and be it a thousand or millions they would blow the money. I would much rather see lower gas leasing costs that lead to lower utility bills. The public pays for these windfalls of politicians in the long run., Then too, would this be permitted under current zoning laws? You can bet the city would use zoning to prevent it if they didn't want it.

Article doesn't even say the attorney can get the town $3400 and the article even states that oil and gas companies are not interested. They are tryng to get the companies to be interested by offering more land in ep. Which if that happens it could benefit the entire town. (Until counsel decides to waste more of the people's money)

I say lets start an EP witch hunt...and run this idiotic council guy straight out of town! Since he doesn't pay his property taxes, he prob has no problem letting good ol' EP "use" his land for what ever money he might pocket (then maybe he can pay his fair share of taxes)) Enough already! When can we oust this BOZO. You better pray he comes door to door getting written consent from land owners for this hair brained scheme.....and I'm waiting for him! And if our village manager goes along with this...he too should be run outta town pronto!! Every time you turn around it's something different with this clown and his get rich quick schemes. Just pay YOUR taxes...that's money already put back into the community!! geesh!

Why doesn't the town just get more business and factories? Then they wouldn't have to con people into this.

Can't anybody in this village think positive for one minute. The voters voted Mr. Elzer into office. If he can make the citizens of EP a few bucks, I am for it. As far as jobs in this town. Show me the industrial park. Maybe we need one. Better yet, show me where we could build one. The location of EP is one of it's biggest faults. It leads to no where. More businesses are not here because they cant make money with such a small population. Simple economics. The second problem EP has is that 25% of the homes in the village are rentals. No stability here. I'm not for or against Mr. Elzer, but what other ideas are counsel members coming up with? Just sayen.
