Lake Tyler Decision On Hold

Drilling for gas and oil at Lake Tyler remains on hold as an East Texas judge considers how to move forward. Smith County District Judge Jack Skeen heard arguments from lawyers representing the city of Tyler and "Save Lake Tyler Association" this morning. Several Lake Tyler residents were in attendance. "Save Lake Tyler" is asking Judge Skeen to void a contract the city made last december with C.W. Recources to drill for oil and gas, claiming the city didn't follow proper procedure. Skeen's ruling is expected some time next week.
