Denton City Council to discuss draft ordinance

It looks like the draft ordinance for Denton is about to be made public. Council will have a closed session on Tuesday - you can find their agenda here, and below is an excerpt of the key text:

3.Consult with and provide direction to City’s attorneys regarding legal issues and strategies associated with Phase I and proposed Phase II Gas Well Ordinance regulation of gas well drilling and production within the City Limits and the extraterritorial jurisdiction, including Constitutional limitations, statutory limitations upon municipal regulatory authority, moratorium on drilling and production and claims associated therewith, including variance requests for relief from the moratorium, statutory preemption and/or impacts of federal and state law and regulations as it concerns municipal regulatory authority and matters relating to enforcement of the ordinance.
