Tomorrow the Denton City Council will have a public hearing and most likely vote to approve the latest gas well drilling ordinance.
This ordinance will not protect public health, property values or the Denton way of life.
If you care about the future of Denton, you need to be there.
Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 6:30 p.m.

The City Council appeared satisfied with the rewrites during a work session last Tuesday, giving little feedback to the staff on the fifth draft other than to ask how to best explain the final product to residents.
Other Barnett Shale cities have adopted much stronger gas well ordinances. Show up Tuesday evening and ash the council this question:
Why are the residents in Southlake, Flower Mound, and others more worthy of protection than Denton?
