The gas well near my house is very loud. Can the county regulate this?
While cities and towns have legal authority to regulate a lot of issues dealing with the public, county law is based on state constitutional law, and the authority given to them by the state legislature. As a result, county government does not have the authority to deal with many issues that arise. Control of the oil and gas industry is one area where county government has very little control and we cannot regulate them. Sorry!
