video excerpts from A "non-meeting" in Hillsgrove, PA

Chesapeake wants to establish a five acre water withdrawal point and water impoundment facility in the middle of Hillsgrove. The owner of the property signed a surface agreement, but never agreed to this.
Our Sullivan County Commissioners, Darla Bortz and Betty Reibson tried to exclude non-Hillsgrove Twp residents from the meeting saying that this did not concern anyone outside of Hillsgrove. They then denied recieving any notification, but according to the state, the county must receive notice of any permits for anything within the county.
I, and many other non-Hillsgrove residents were invited by the people of Hillsgrove to support their position, because Darla told them they were not allowed to publicize the meeting in the Sully because she didn't want 'outsiders' getting involved. The Loyalsock runs for 63.5 miles, and is one of the centerpieces of Sullivan and Lycoming Counties, and the economic health of tourism depends largely on the Loyalsock.
See for yourself how they tried to discourage any opposition, or township ordinances that may interfere with Chesapeake's plans.
I'll apologize in advance for my display of anger, but I could not tolerate their cockiness and disregard for the people they were elected to represent.
You'll see what I mean...

This is NOT a meeting. How Orwellian is that?
