Davenport Town Board Tells FERC NO
Kudos to the Davenport Town Board and Supervisor Dennis Valente for sending a clear, sharply worded resolution to FERC stating opposition to the Constitution Pipeline. Further, the resolution states that any actions by Constitution Pipeline to route the line through the Town of Davenport will meet vigorous opposition.
This was the third night in a row for the FERC team, and they looked tired but determined. Williams again bussed in union workers from Rome and Newburgh to pack the room and dominate the speakers list. Judging from their comments, most of which we’d already heard in Oneonta on the previous evening, none of them have actually read the DEIS that they were supposed to be commenting upon. Most simply said that the DEIS was complete and adequate, and then moved on to fantasize about jobs and economic salvation for upstate NY.
