Oil and Gas

In 2004 the Ohio Legislature passed HB 278 removing all oil and gas exploration, permitting and oversight authority from local governments, transferring those responsibilities to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). While the Township no longer has authority to regulate Oil or Gas matters the Trustees are supposed to receive notifications when applications for a permit to drill oil and gas wells in Granville Township are submitted to ODNR. See below for a link to the most recent applications.
