Council approves moratorium on construction, operation
MANSFIELD — “City council approved a one-year moratorium Tuesday prohibiting construction or operation of any injection wells in the Mansfield Industrial Park.
Law Director John Spon sought the legislation, saying it would buy the city time to plan how it would finance and carry out extensive geologic testing if any company seeks permits in the future to build injection wells at that location.
Council approved the one-year moratorium in a 7-0 vote during a special meeting Tuesday night.
The legislation was to go into effect immediately.”
