Dougherty County, escalating after resolutions and letters to FERC and multiple protests, now sees its Albany City government calling for a combined meeting of local, state, and federal elected officials to stop the Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline from invading southwest Georgia for profit of a company in Houston, Texas and no local benefits; only destruction and hazards.
Here’s the agenda item:
III. Recommendation of the Committee of the Whole to convene a meeting with Dougherty County Commissioners, Congressional and State delegates to discuss Sabal Pipeline
That city/county/state/federal meeting will be on August 18th.
Meanwhile, the Lowndes County, GA Commission meets that same evening and has on its agenda about the Sabal Trail pipeline: nothing.
As Albany City Commissioner Roger Marietta just pointed out to FERC, This pipeline is a soft target that has inadequate security measures.
You can still call and petition Georgia Governor Deal and ecomment to FERC.
