Updated 31 March 2014: Who stood up.
Updated 4 June 2014: Fixed video links.
Not only did Colquitt County pass a resolution about pipeline depth;
a County Commissioner the county attorney stood up and reminded FERC about it,
which got John Peconom to admit that FERC has required a deeper minimum
pipeline depth in some other states.
So far that’s speaking against the pipeline:
- Gilchrist County Commission, FL: 5 Commissioners + County Administrator + County Attorney
- Dougherty County Commission, GA: 1 Commissioner + County Attorney
- Lowndes County Commission, GA: 0 (zero, none, zip)
Colquitt County Commission, GA:
1 CommissionerCounty Attorney + a resolution
Only one of those county commissions claims there’s nothing you can do; the rest are all doing something.
