Petition to Ban Fracking

The Denton City Council has denied a resident-driven initiative to ban hydraulic fracturing in the city limits

How they voted:

Yes (to deny): Jim Engelbrecht, Joey Hawkins, Greg Johnson, John Ryan, Chris Watts

No: Kevin Roden, Dalton Gregory

What’s next? Under the city charter, the initiative to ban hydraulic fracturing goes to Denton voters. The City Council has called that election for Nov. 4.
