The Valdosta City Council discussed a resolution against the Sabal Trail pipeline at their Work Session Tuesday, as you can see in these videos. Come see them vote on it tonight at 5:30 PM at City Hall.
They also heard a bomb report at the Work Session, in addition to discussing all the other business, especially the taxicab ordinance.
At the same time Tuesday, the Lowndes County Commission unanimously approved its own resolution against Sabal Trail. The city resolution supports the county resolution, and adds a clause about protecting our drinking water in the Floridan Aquifer. These are the latest in a long and increasing string of resolutions against this unnecessary, destructive, and hazardous pipeline.
Here’s the agenda. The videos of Tuesday’s Valdosta City Council Work Session are linked below, followed by a video playlist. Due to unfamiliar camera, I missed recording the prayer and pledge, and there’s one glitch in the middle due to changing batteries, but everything else is here.
