Canandaigua is considering a ban on hydrofracking. According to our news partners at the Messenger Post, town board members will present their updated proposal tonight. Our news partners say the new bill is more of a partial ban and focuses more on other methods of oil and gas extraction.

Canandaigua has a moratorium on hydrofracking that expires in March.

Tonight’s meeting starts at 7 p.m. at Canandaigua Town Hall.
