State Rep. Hagan urges Youngstown council to have public meeting on land-lease drilling deal
YOUNGSTOWN — State Rep. Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th, wants city council to have public hearings on a proposal to lease city-owned land for oil and gas drilling before the legislative body votes on it.
Councilman Mike Ray, D-4th and chairman of the public utilities committee, said council plans to discuss the matter as a committee or as the full council at either a public meeting or hearing.
A decision is expected shortly with the meeting or hearing to take place later this week, Ray said.
Council decided last Wednesday to postpone a vote on leasing land for drilling.
