Commissioners Approve Drilling In Washington County< < Back to
The Washington County commissioners unanimously granted drilling rights to an out-of-state firm last night.
A former county commissioner member voiced concern about the proximity of the land near the county nursing home.
A Washington County prosecuting attorney says the drilling will not be on the land near the nursing home.
According to the commissioners and their attorney, this is not the first time a company has had permission to drill on the county home site.
Another company had similar rights 30 years ago, before it went out of business.
