Concerned about the propsed natural gas pipeline that an energy group wants to run through Floyd County?

Let the Board of Supervisors know Tuesday night at the second regularly-scheduled meeting of the month.  It starts at 7 p.m. at the county administration building on Oxford Street in Floyd and a public comment period opens the meeting.

The proposed pipeline is on the board’s agenda.  We understand some county residents are already planning to speak on the issue.

A full house at the Floyd Country Store last week heard speakers describe what could be a long, hard fight to stop the pipeline that will run from West Virginia to a distribution station in Chatham and pass through Giles, Pulaski, Montgomery, Floyd and Franklin counties before arriving at the station in Pittsylvania.

Company lobbyists are already working Virginia elected and appointed officials and have reportedly purchased the pipe and plan to start construction if, and when, approval is gained.

It is time for residents of Floyd County to speak out on how they feel about the project.
