Supreme Court nixes Meigs 2016 charter propsal

The Ohio Supreme Court on Tuesday said it will not force a proposed 2016 charter initiative to be placed on the Nov. 8 ballot in Meigs County.

The ruling, a 6-1 majority, affects a measure seeking to prohibit the disposal of fracking waste, as well as ban the use of water for the fracking process of oil and gas drilling. The decision also impacts similar initiatives in Portage and Athens counties.
