ATTN FLOWER MOUND: What happened last night was a travesty! Please take the time to thank Council Members Filidoro and Hayden who voted against.
I just got home and the meeting continues. We had to stand in line to get in and the Fireman said there were over
300 400 people in attendance. By far the people in attendance are against the proposed Williams facility.
My favorite moment so far was the woman who made the unfortunate analogy of a boat with many holes versus a boat with one big hole and related that to the collection facility. Ahm, either way, the boat sinks.
Mayor Tillman made a great point: Williams uses the latest technology in Colorado because it’s mandated but they refuse to use that technology here because it’s not mandated.
There were many great speakers who made some great points. Shiloh Chris wasn’t one of them.
I just received this in an email from someone who is a former pipeline executive: Under a FOI request, it was revealed that Williams had about 65 leaks per year for 5 years on a stretch of pipe from the Gulf to NY. They all leak folks!
Seveal people have mentioned that Colorado has stronger regulations and those regulations were pushed by the Oil and Gas Accountability Project.
Okay, HELLO? Lady who is for drilling as long as it’s in the country! People live in the country too, so do the animals that you eat. And the food that the animals you eat eats is grown in the country. Our water flows into your water and our air is your air. Don’t push it off on someone else.
Wow! During the questions and answer period for the council there was some major false information given! Pretty outrageous
WOW! It’s 12:45 AM, Tom Haden is delivering a great speech and making some great points and asking important questions yet the mayor was just way out of line in asking him to tone it down. How condescending can you get?
To date: 60 billion gallons of water polluted and wasted in the Barnett Shale.
Unbelievable! They COMPLETELY ignored what the Flower Mound residents want. However, it’s not surprising. It was obvious from the beginning of the meeting that the council members had already made up their minds. Only 2 members of the Flower Mound Council serve their constituents.
