ABCA addresses the Denton County Commisioners Court

Yesterday, ABCA made a powerful presentation to the Denton County Commissioners Court. ABCA stated that the toxic waste is being pushed into neighborhoods outside of municipalities where there are no setbacks and no ordinances to protect residents. As a result, in the past couple of months many area groups have formed alliances to combat the impacts that gas drilling on our environment.

ABCA stated it is not to late for our community but we need to act quickly. We can not wait on state legislation. Changes need to be made now. A task force is just one step in the process. But a necessary step.

The commissioners and Judge Horn agreed and will take action on forming a task force to adopt a best practices for Denton County. This task force will include citizens groups, municipalities and the industry. I am sure this will feel like the Hatfields and Macoys as Copper Canyon Mayor Sue Tejml described.
