MORRIS – In the wake of the state Court of Appeals’ June 30 decision upholding local fracking bans, Town Board member Marilyn Roveland will make a motion at Tuesday’s town board meeting calling for a ban here.

Advocates for Morris announced her intention in a press release asking ban supporters to attend the meeting and support Roveland. “Your presence and your voices are more important now than ever before,” the release says.

Attorney David Slottje of Ithaca, from the Community Environmental Defense Council, has again offered his services for free to help the town board craft a defensible fracking ban, the Advocates said.
