Albany, MGAG, and Brooks County, GA moved to intervene with Sabal Trail

Yesterday’s crop of intervenors included Brooks County, Georgia, Albany Audubon Society, and Albany, Georgia, the county seat of Dougherty County, which filed the previous day, Today’s the deadline! Here’s how to file a motion to intervene.

Plus yesterday the Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia (MGAG) filed. MGAG is the customer Sabal Trail claimed in Georgia so it could try to exercise Georgia eminent domain. Sabal Trail said Dougherty and Colquitt were the counties despite both Dougherty County and Albany having already passed resolutions wanting no Sabal Trail in their city, county, or state, Colquitt County having passed a resolution against the pipeline, and the Mayor of Moultrie saying on WCTV that Moultrie had never been asked if they needed or wanted any gas.

Maybe today we’ll see motions to intervene by Lowndes County and Valdosta, both of which have passed resolutions against the pipeline.

That Brooks County motion is hard to find, being filed as

(doc-less) Motion to Intervene of Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC under CP15-17.

But the text includes as Basis of Intervention:

This motion is filed on behalf of the Brooks County Board of Commissioners sow they decide to make a formal intervention concerning the Sabal Trail Gas Pipeline project.

Many more organizations and individuals have filed. I’ve only listed a few that I recognized as unusual. More later.
