On Nov. 18, the WWALS Coalition  published the following regarding the actions of the Suwannee County BOCC yesterday:Scroll

They wanted to pass this resolution, already in the handouts at the beginning of the meeting,


Actually adopted Nov 17th 2015

without even waiting for citizen comments.
They did listen first to a few people who had signed up to
to talk about the compressor station,
including WWALS member David Shields, whose family has an organic farm and discovered they’d be downwind of the compressor station,
and Johanna deGraffenreid, the new Gulf Coast Campaign Coordinator for Gulf Restoration Network. Everybody else got to speak later in the meeting.

RESOLUTION NO. 2016—

A RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY

COMMISSIONERS OF SUWANNEE COUNTY, FLORIDA,

SUPPORTING THE MOVEMENT OF THE SABAL TRAIL

“HILDRETH” COMPRESSION STATION

WHEREAS, citizenry of Suwannee County have raised concerns regarding
Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC’s relocation of the
“Hildreth” compression station (Compression Station 5)
to an area outside of historically denominated
“Hildreth” area of the county to the second option
location (Compression Station 5, option 2) at approximately the
intersection of County Road 49 and Market Road (216th Street); and

WHEREAS, the citizenry has raised concerns/that the shift in
location to the secondary option site has brought the compression
station location and its recurring noise and potential
environmental, health and safety impacts in closer proximity to a
more densely populated rural residential area; and

WHEREAS, the Board recognizes the increased net change in
potentially affected residential properties and desires to express
the concerns of its citizenry to Sabal Tail Transmission LLC.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE lT RESOLVED, by the Board of County
Commissioners, Suwannee County, Florida as follows:

That the Board of County Commissioners, Suwannee County, Florida,
does hereby request Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC reconsider the
location of the “Hildreth” compression station
(Compression Station 5, option 2) and move said compression station
to another location along the proposed route where there would be a
net decrease in the rural residential properties affected by the
location.

PASSED, ADOPTED and APPROVED, this _ day of January, 2015.
