York County to get $365K in shale money

June 25, 2013


York County is set to receive more than $365,000 from fees paid to the state by natural gas drillers in other areas of Pennsylvania, and county commissioners have already committed nearly half of it for the Northern Extension of the York County Heritage Rail Trail.

Though there's no drilling in York County, all counties get a share of the fees from a special Marcellus Shale Legacy Fund. The money must be used for recreation and open space projects.
