We’re not sure the county had much of a choice but to suspend the Oil and Gas Task Force, since the group has hit an impasse in its efforts to produce an ordinance to regulate drilling. But we are certain that the future course of action will be critical to the health and well-being of San Miguel County’s citizenry.
To that end, we urge county officials to commit to something they’ve already indicated they’ll do: Extend the moratorium on drilling until a regulating ordinance has been thoroughly and publicly scrutinized and passed into law.
