Another step in the pipeline fight

    On Monday, Dougherty County Commissioners voted to pass a resolution opposing the proposed Sabal Trail Pipeline and Compressor Station.

    Officials say in the past year they've written four letters to Sabal Trails on behalf of Dougherty County citizens and businesses.

    They say after the September meeting when Sabal Trail officials came to Dougherty County to explain why they chose SWGA to build the pipeline, County Commissioners found pipeline would do more harm than good.

    Dougherty County Attorney Spencer Lee says, "they found there is no need for it and it's likely to harm the environment and our socio-economic and culture activities."

    The next step in this process is sending the resolution to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
