Dear Kim Feil,

Your public information request to the City of Arlington, received 8/28/2018, has been referred to me for response. We have searched our records and have been unable to locate any records maintained by the City responsive to your request. However, I received the following information from the Finance Department that may be helpful:

Here are the revenues that the City has received:


Aug – Sept 2017                 FY17       1,770,023.11

Oct – July 2018                   FY18       6,280,340.25

Last 12 Months                                8,050,363.36


We do not have the tax values for pad sites.  TAD (Tarrant Appraisal District) would have these records.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding this matter.

Burning question…..if the padsite surface valuation at…

8225 Meadowbrook is 75% less (.50 cents sq ft TAD#05304067) than comparable nearby 8301 Meadowbrook ($2 sq ft TAD#05302633), does the SUBsurface mineral taxes make up, exceed, or fall short had we not ever fracked there?

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
