Bradford County Natural Gas Advisory Committee
The Bradford County Commissioners appointed the Natural Gas Advisory Committee on July 10, 2008 to provide the commissioners and related agencies with necessary information and feedback in regards to the development of the Marcellus Shale in our communities.
The members of the committee were selected from different sectors of the community to examine issues and take action in regards to the many ways in which the development of natural gas is affecting our county. Members of the committee continue to:
- Develop relationships with the industry and our community
- Encourage a diverse forum from which to learn about this developing industry
- Develop opportunities for public education and understanding
The committee meets on a quarterly basis and the sub-committees’ meetings are held monthly. Please check the calendar for upcoming meetings.
