MIDLAND - A controversial item is on the agenda for the Midland City Council this week.

Members will be voting on whether or not to approve five drilling permits for oil company RSP Permian.

The proposed drilling locations are within city limits and close to a neighborhood.

You'll remember homeowners in the area voiced their concerns and frustrations in a heated public hearing back in September.

The Council put off a decision on the issue at their last meeting but they'll take it up again on Tuesday.

If it passes, members will also be considering a road repair agreement with the company.
