On Monday night, the Lewisville city council approved permits for oil and gas drilling in the city.
The city granted 12 permits to Williams Gulf Coast Production who plans to drill on sites along Ace Lane and Spinks Road.
Several Flower Mound city council members asked Lewisville to delay the vote until the drilling company provided more answers into how they planned to control emissions. Flower Mound said the initial plan was vague.
The permits were approved by a 3-2 vote.
