Judge Rules For City in Lake Tyler Drilling Case

The drilling will go on at Lake Tyler. On Tuesday, State District Judge Jack Skeen turned down a request by members of the "Save Lake Tyler Association" that would have stopped the drilling.

Tyler Mayor Joey Seeber said he's pleased with the decision. An attorney for the "Save Lake Tyler Association" said he'll talk with his clients and decide whether or not to appeal.

The City of Tyler entered into an agreement last year allowing for the drilling. Nearby residents had argued they weren't notified properly before the lease was signed and that the lease violated state code.
