Sidney Will Not Appeal Judges Decision on Fracking

The Town of Sidney will not appeal a judge's decision that struck down the fracking ban imposed by the Sidney town board last year.

The judge ruled the ban invalid because it was not passed by a super majority of the Sidney board.

The attorney for those suing the board argued that a super majority is needed if landowners who own at least 20 percent of acreage in a municipality sign a petition protesting a change in zoning.

The town board says the ban was a moratorium, not a zoning amendment.
