MIDLAND - Oil and gas drilling are taking up a few agenda items at the Midland City Council meeting on Tuesday.

A public hearing will be held to address oil drilling inside the city limits.

The company, Vector Oil and Gas, is asking the city for permits to drill two oil and gas wells on the east side of Holiday Hill Road, just south of Mockingbird Lane.

Two other drilling requests by Bluestem Energy will also be up for public comment.

Those sites are located off of north Midkiff and north Midland Drive, both north of Mockingbird Lane.

Council members will also consider issuing permits to another oil company for drilling inside the city.
