City seeks public input on gas drilling Thursday

The city’s Gas Drilling Task Force is expected to make recommendations to City Council by the end of the year, and the panel wants to hear from Dallas residents.

A public forum on gas drilling is at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27 in the L1F Auditorium at City Hall. This could be the last time the public is invited for feedback before the committee makes its recommendations to City Council on whether to allow gas drilling in the city.

“The Gas Drilling Task Force has spent the past four months hearing from experts in the field, regulatory agency representatives, staff from area cities, and environmental and neighborhood leaders,” says task force chair Lois Finkelman. “It’s a good time to hear again from the citizens of Dallas on this very important issue.”
