RE: FERC Docket #PF-14-l-Sabal Trail Transmissions, LLC

Dear Chairman LaFleur.

On Monday, September 15, 2014, in regular meeting, the Dougherty County Commissioners, city officials and citizens discussed the proposed Sabal Trail natural gas pipeline that will pass through Dougherty County, Georgia. Based on that discussion, I herewith offer the following comments to you for your consideration:

300x236 Blue is Sabal Trai compressor site; Red is City of Albany, in City of Albany Water, Gas and Light, by John S. Quarterman, for SpectraBusters.org, 30 September 2014 As Mayor of Albany, I adamantly object to the alignment as proposed. In working with the citizens of Albany/Dougherty County, the comments received are not in support of the proposed alignment. Speciļ¬c objections are the location ofthe compression station which will be within feet of the City of Albany’s Water, Gas and Light facility that is located on Lily Pond Road. The citizens and city/county elected officials feel that there is a failure to look at other alternatives and respectfully ask that this project be put on hold until the concerns and questions have been addressed.

Thank you in advance for your immediate attention to this matter.



Dorothy B. Hubbard
