Albany City Commission to convene a meeting with Dougherty County Commissioners, Congressional and State delegates to discuss Sabal Pipeline

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:

AGENDA
BOARD OF CITY COMMISSIONERS
TUESDAY, JULY 28, 2015
6:00 PM — EARLY BRIEFING — ROOM 120
6:30 PM — REGULAR MEETING — ROOM 100

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.
