Cecil Township and Canonsburg Borough to Host Workshops related to Oil and Gas

Posted Feb 18, 2020, by Heaven Sensky

On Monday, February 24th, there are two coinciding opportunities to make your voice heard on oil and gas issues in Canonsburg Borough and Cecil Township. The Oil and Gas industry and its friends are expected to be in attendance for both, making their demands known. Both of these meetings are opportunities for you to make sure that your local government officials are listening to you instead of just industry.

If you live in Canonsburg, the Borough of Canonsburg is holding a public workshop on Monday, February 24th at 6:30 PM to discuss what industry investment and encouragement folks want to see in Canonsburg. Jeff Kotula, President of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce and an avid supporter of the Oil and Gas industry, is listed as a speaker. 

Monday, February 24th

6:30 PM

Canonsburg Borough Building

68 E Pike St. #2, Canonsburg, PA 15317 

If you live in Cecil Township, there is a public workshop to get public input on their Oil and Gas ordinance on Monday, February 24th at 7 PM. CCJ will be holding a pre-workshop meeting for anyone interested in giving comments where we will be providing pizza and childcare – please RSVP so we can plan accordingly!
