The Dallas Morning news lays it out for you.
Representatives of the drillers, most notably WilliamsProduction, smiled and assured everyone that they had the best interests of the community in mind. But they refused to answer probing questions, while forging ahead with plans for at least 100 more wells, many in close proximity to homes, schools and businesses.
Meanwhile, Mayor Jody Smith and her allies on the Town Council fiddle while Flower Mound is pillaged.
Despite pleas from their constituents to tap the brakes and assess the long-term consequences, certain officials continue to accede to the drillers' demands. Recently, roughly 600 residents packed a hearing to voice opposition to controversial new zoning ordinances requested by Williams, just as a similarly irate group had advocated a moratorium on new drilling permits in December. In both cases, three of the five council members thumbed their noses at the crowd and sided with the drillers.
