---- — Do you think towns should be allowed to ban hydrofracking?

"No, it's an individual landowner's right, but more study could be done."

-- Clyde Bussy, Oneonta, retired

"I think if a town wants to and the people want it banned, they should be able to."

-- Albert Huntley, Oneonta, retired

"Yes. I think towns realize the damage it can do more so than states, so if they want to, they should be able to."

-- Kayla Denning, Stamford, nurse

"I think it should be allowed, if it helps the economy and research has shown it's not harmful."

--Steven Carnes, Stamford, mechanic

"Cities have been able to ban business and what they can do for years. I think if they are allowed to do that, then they should be able to ban fracking."

--Marlene Self, Oneonta, retired
