Anti-gas group seeks Milo resolution

MILO--At the same time the village of Watkins Glen was approving their resolution in opposition to Crestwood’s proposed liquid petroleum gas (LPG) project, the town of Milo was being asked to draft their own resolution. Four members of Gas Free Seneca gave a presentation to the Milo town board during their meeting Monday, Aug. 18 requesting the town take similar action in the form of a resolution opposing the Reading storage expansion.
Town Clerk Patricia Christensen said co-founder Joseph Campbell spoke along with Rob Mackenzie, former president and CEO of the Cayuga Medical Center, Seneca County Supervisor Steve Churchill and Valerie Churchill during the meeting. Christensen said this is the first time the group has come before the board to make this request.
During the meeting, the Gas Free Seneca representatives highlighted several areas in which the project poses a threat to safety of the area. Christensen said Mackenzie distributed information regarding his risk assessment of the proposed expansion project, information that was being disputed by U.S. Salt Engineer David Crea at the Watkins Glen board meeting also held that night.
Christensen said the board took no action regarding a resolution, adding there will probably be more board discussion on the issue before they decide whether or not to take action on the request.
In other business:
• The board authorized the purchase of a new pickup truck and plow for a combined cost of $31,262.
