Rochester Hills City Council puts drilling plans on hold

For nearly three years there has been a debate over drilling in Rochester Hills. On Tuesday, August 26 a special meeting was held by the City of Rochester Hills to decide the next steps. And for now, the decision has been made to suspend any drilling pending state legislators ability to write clearer bills detailing where such projects can be sited.

One of the biggest opponents to this project is the nonprofit ‘Don’t Drill the Hills, Inc.’ (DDHI). As Rochester Media posted yesterday, the special meeting announcement was made by the City Clerk via email on Monday, August 25, but only received by a select number of residents. DDHI members said the announcement wasn’t even posted on the City website until after they pressured them to do so.
