Albany city and county leaders team up with state lawmakers against proposed pipeline

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany and Dougherty County leaders are teaming up with state lawmakers to oppose that proposed natural gas pipeline.

They invite you to an informational meeting next week that will also include a representative from Congressman Sanford Bishop's Office.

City Commissioner Roger Marietta also says it's not too late to send your comments about the proposed Sabal Trail pipeline to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

"We've shown a solid front from the beginning,” said Roger Marietta, City Commissioner. “The city and County have both passed unanimous resolutions against this. So our state representatives have expressed support."

The meeting will be held next Tuesday at noon at the Riverfront Resource Center on Pine Avenue.

The company behind the pipeline says it would be good for our area because it would include taps where industries could access the pipeline to power their businesses.
