The possibility of drilling attracted residents to the Cave Spring City Council meeting this week. Steve Craw told city councilors that he was concerned about protecting the city's water source.

Councilmember Ken Landers said officials will attempt to get more information about the drilling and have the city attorney advise them of any action they could take.
