More power to them.
Read about it on the Grapevine Courier.
By the way, did the rest of you know you could tell the seismic testers not to look at your info? And if you do that, "it is never seen". How many of you buy that?
Neither the testing company, Dawson Geophysical Co. of Midland, nor Chesapeake gave the City Council advance notice of their plans. The council members and the mayor were unhappy they were not informed.
The only parts of the county not yet completed were small sections of North Richland Hills and Euless, and all of Grapevine, according to officials.
After Chesapeake announced it would postpone the testing, Tate said the company was having trouble getting people to give permission for the geophone placements.
"Part of that was a lack of information on what it was," he said. "And second there is a concern about drilling."
However, Tate was not happy that Chesapeake had not informed the city earlier, and questioned why the company did not need a permit to do the testing. He expressed concern that the buggy convoys would add more frustration to drivers already frustrated with streets and roads blocked by construction.
"I'm sure citizens will be thrilled with more traffic at this time," Tate said at the meeting. "They're fed up now. Your timing is not very good."
Tate suggested Chesapeake postpone the seismic testing until the fall when the DFW Connector is expected to be 85 percent completed, or later when it is done. "With gas at a dollar, I don't know what the urgency is," he said.
