The Lewisville City Council overturns a very short lived moratorium on natural gas permits.
It was put in place by the city manager Friday and overturned yesterday. Mayor Pro tem Greg Tierney wanted to keep it in place. He says Lewisville has only one gas drilling site which isn’t active right now and two permits are pending. However Tierney says it will be a big deal in the future.
He says too much isn’t know about the effects of natural gas drilling and he wasn’t to ensure the health and safety of Lewisville residents are taken into concern.
