I think Mansfield heard about DoodyGate.
If you don’t play by the rules in Mansfield, Texas, you don’t get to play.
The council voted 7-0 to deny without prejudice Range Production Co.’s request for a special-use permit to drill just east of Texas 360 at Britton Road.
The quick decision came after the council learned that the Planning and Zoning Commission voted unanimously to deny Range’s application, which the company did not revise before taking it to the council.
A report written to the commission by city staff recommended rejecting the application because of the violations.
In May, the city notified Range and its attorney of violations, including a lack of permanent access, equipment taller than permitted and an unauthorized line compressor that needed to be removed, the document states.
