This citizen advisory committee looks to be way different than the one in Denton where the deck was stacked in the frackers’ favor.
City council approves plan to create citizen advisory committee on oil and gas
Council to consider appointing 9-member board during meeting later this month
Posted: May 10, 2013
The committee will include one petroleum engineer, one member of the Lubbock Water Advisory Commission, one oil and gas industry operator, one member of the Board of Health and five members from the community at-large to be appointed by the council within 30 days from the resolution’s adoption.
The advisory committee and city council should hear from citizens who are living in the frack zone so they can learn from direct experience.
We are watching you, Lubbock.
