The Flagstaff City Council will discuss a recent discovery involving an energy company that wants to test for helium on Red Gap Ranch. The City of Flagstaff has entered a memorandum of understanding with Desert Mountain Energy Corporation to allow access and seismic testing on the ranch east of Flagstaff. The company also wants to explore for helium and mine on lands adjacent to the ranch. Questions from the council surfaced after the company put out a press release last week stating their intentions. The city states they didn’t get a chance to go over the release before DMEC sent it out. Staff is recommending terminating the notice and issuing a new license for access only. The city bought Red Gap Ranch in 2005 for nearly eight million dollars, strictly as a future water source for Flagstaff and has debated ways to bring water into the city for a few years. Tuesday’s work session, that will discuss this topic, begins at 6 p.m.
