Monticello, FL bans fracking

Passed a resolution, actually, but that contributes towards an ordinance or a statewide ban on fracking in Florida.

Our Santa Fe River, 4 August 2015, Sometimes You Win One!

Members of the Floridians Against Fracking Anti-Fracking Coalition and other supporters and friends celebrated tonight when the Monticello City Council voted unanimously to support a ban on fracking by resolution. Multiple members from OSFR were present and addressed the Council.

Today, August 4, 2015 was an important date for banning fracking, as it was attacked in several municipalities. Several people spoke in support of the ban, led by Amy Datz and supported by Dr. Ray Bellamy, Gale Dickert, OSFR Policy Director Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson, Herb Shelton, and several others. Amy Datz had placed the item on the Council’s agenda for the 7 o’clock meeting.

WWALS is a member of Floridians Against Fracking, and we congratulate OSFR Policy Director Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson for her tireless work against fracking!
