Wilmot Township is raising the red flag about Chesapeake Energy royalty payments in the Northern Tier.

Last night, residents voted to stop Chesapeake Energy from removing anymore gas from it's wells until the company pays lease-holders their full gas royalties.

Many in Wilmot would like the state to step in and force Chesapeake to pay what's due.

Chesapeake Energy is accused of using "bait and switch" methods with leaseholders who signed contracts decades ago.
