   Overview

Scio Twp residents living near the intersection of Zeeb and Dexter-Ann Arbor roads have received inquiries about leasing the mineral rights on their property from Traverse City-based West Bay Exploration Company.
There is concern with both the environmental impact the wells could have on the area and a potential loss in property values associated with having oil wells nearby.
