troll, "Francis said her office has not conducted any air testing, but she said the industry keeps her staff busy because transient workers often bring their children to the health department for immunizations required by Marshall County Schools.

"We have seen a tremendous increase in the number of immunizations we do for school children. Many states don't require everything that West Virginia requires for children to go to school, so they come in here to get what they need," she said."

Maybe those peeps on Greenfield go to the PO Box! LOL Funny some years ago they had mail boxes at the road in front of many of the houses. LOL

dyingov “Does living in a RV make them residents for tax purposes?”

You’d have to ask the WV State Tax Department that one. I would guess yes it does.

dyingov “How would they prove residency for inclusion into the school system?”

I don’t know. You’re the one complaining that they’re in the school system, so somehow it seems they manage to prove residency.

dyingov “What would the address be for a camp on Greenfield ridge? LOL”

I doubt half the people who live in houses on that ridge or any of the surrounding ridges know their own actual street addresses, and somehow they manage. LOL

RRafael “What's wrong with this picture?”

Maybe what's wrong is that you busybodies are busy telling other people what they can and can’t do with their private property? LOL

HiHowRU “I wouldn't buy property anywhere near fracking activity. Rural landowners need to sue for lost value and petition the county for lower property taxes based upon lower values.”

Yeah Hi, you try buying that shale property on the cheap now that it’s producing millions in gas royalties now. LOL And you try telling the assessor that gas-producing property isn’t worth anything now. Double LOL You loons are too funny.

This is just a new version of the coal company stores and towns for these migrant workers. Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it. First they took the timber, then the coal, now the gas, and West Virginia continues to rank among the poorest of states despite its rich natural resources. What's wrong with this picture?

The original shale camp was called Vaivara and the contamination and bodies are still there, Run by Nazi's..it is online, look it up. One test of the air finding dangerous chemicals where children are living would be enough to prove endangerment. The circus continues.

I wouldn't buy property anywhere near fracking activity. Rural landowners need to sue for lost value and petition the county for lower property taxes based upon lower values. I bet the real estate agents are keeping real quiet when showing property in these industrial zones. Jobs for West Virginians, what a laugh. Drill Baby Drill for energy independence, another joke. All this sacrifice for the 1%ers and exports. Even Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson doesn't want it in his back yard and is suing. I hope he wins so that it will help the little guy sue to stop this madness.

dyingov, so if American citizens freely choose to live in RV camps, and the property owner pays the property tax due on that property as specified by law, you have a problem with that?

Now tell me all about how Marshall County property taxes that go to fund public schools there just aren't high enough. Funny stuff.

How many parents of Marshall County school age children pay property taxes?

Yinz attack the drilling industry by saying that they don't pay taxes to support schools. Well, if you are a renter or public housing resident, you are in the same boat. In either case, the property owner pays the taxes (which, one would assume, are built into your rent).

Fools.

troll, So if 30 RV's are placed in one acre of man camp and each has 2 school aged children.....Property taxes on undeveloped land is minimal! Even you know that. LOL

Gee, maybe the Govt. should require them to make the camps bigger to hold more people. Then they can be used for govt. detention camps later. Like they did to the Japanese Americans in WWII.

Also note the transients are using MC Schools for education! Do those "camps" pay property taxes? Funny stuff.

From the article “Francis... said the office has tested some private water wells to determine if they have been contaminated by stray gases that may have been released by fracking.”

Well, Casey? Were they?

yawn...
