Lubbock's Oil and Gas Advisory Committee met for the first time Monday evening to look at the city's current ordinance, in response to the increase in oil and gas activity throughout the region.
The committee is made up of nine members, all appointed by the city council.
Committee Chairman Zach Brady said Monday's meeting was to organize how they will approach the task at hand.
"We first of all determine what sort of areas we want to look at in order to update the ordinance and determine what the best course of action is for the city," Brady said.
The committee will report to the city council for the first time during the council meeting on Thursday at 6:15 p.m.
