Monday night, Flower Mound residents delivered a 6,000-signature petition to city leaders asking for a moratorium on issuing permits for a centralized gas collection facility.

Residents want the city council to do more research into drilling and the long-term effects, before granting additional permits.

The council will decide May 3 whether to put the measure up for a public vote.  If it goes to a public vote, the vote would likely be placed on November's ballot.
