Dougherty County Commission considers anti-pipeline resolution: Commissioner John Hayes asks board to take formal stance against natural gas pipeline,

ALBANY — A Dougherty County Commissioner asked the members of that body Monday to support a resolution formally opposing the Sabal Trail natural gas pipeline that is expected to come through the county.

District 2 Commissioner John Hayes called for a resolution in opposition of the pipeline at the commission’s business meeting Monday morning.

“The folk we’re charged with servicing are asking this commission — they’re asking me — to bring to you a request for a resolution opposing the pipeline,” Hayes told commissioners. “These citizens are fiercely and vehemently opposed to the pipeline, and this battle (to stop it) is a long way from over.”

That story mentions the recent route alternatives and this:

Spectra held a public information session at the Hilton Garden Inn Monday evening.

And the only other Sabal Trail Open House is 5-7PM tonight, Tuesday 21 October 2014 in Jasper, FL.
