You know the meeting is packed when the fire marshal gives emergency exit tips, just in case. Such was apparently the case recently, when the Flower Mound Oil and Gas Board of Appeals met to discuss one company's petition to begin drilling. According to the Flower Mound Leader (click here to read its story on the hearing), more than 100 residents showed up for the meeting.
"We're not against gas drilling," Becky Belcher, president of Flower Mound Citizens Against Urban Drilling, told the board, according to the Leader."We would be hypocritical if we were. We just don't want it done in a high-density area."
The board decided to take the issue up again at its Aprtl 9 meeting, the Leader said.
