Range Resources recently violated the SUP on two separate occasions.
The Denton Record Chronicle tells us that citations are forthcoming.
Kamp said she “hated” her vote, but that city attorneys told the council that denying the drilling would lead to costly — and successful — lawsuits against the city, since mineral rights are broadly protected in Texas.
She and Burroughs said council members did all they could by imposing 21 conditions on top of the city’s normal drilling rules and by embarking on a complete review of the gas drilling ordinance.
Kamp also said the city would be issuing citations against the driller, Range Production Co., today for alleged violations of those conditions.
The Denton Council needs to find their political courage to amend the drilling ordinance and morph from the municipality with the weakest ordinance to the city with the toughest ordinance.
Hey Denton, you can help out with that. Write the council members and attend the April 20th meeting.
