[Wednesday night I live Facebooked Augusta County Board of Supervisor meeting. One issue concerned the proposed Dominion Power gas pipeline.]
7:45 Pipeline issue is first.
Former Supervisor Nancy Sorrells is leading the opposition to the Dominion Virginia Power gas pipeline. “We as a community have your back” to question Dominion about this pipeline. She has brought a petition with almost 500 names. They want a public hearing in Verona to ask questions of Dominion. She asked supporters to stand and it looked like more than half the room stood.
I have to commend Nancy because she obviously knew there were two controversial issues on the agenda so she asked the anti-pipeline folks not to speak individually to save time. If not for that, we would have gone a lot later than 10:40. There were two individuals who spoke against the pipeline and one who spoke for it.
A representative from Dominion Resources will be there for the August 13 public hearing to address the board.
[…] 7:00 Meeting has been called to order. Estimate 140 people in the room. Regular agenda attended to; pipeline public hearing held first (see separate post). […]
