FULTON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS GET UPDATE ON ANOTHER NATURAL GAS PIPELINE PROJECT

 

 

It sounds like northwest Ohio is prime ground for natural gas pipeline plans.  The Fulton County Commissioners heard from the third company seeking to run a natural gas pipeline from eastern Ohio, through FultonCounty.   Mark Waggoner addressed the commissioners concerning plans for the Spectra-Nexus natural gas pipeline.  It would cover 250 miles, in a project that could be completed in 2017.   Commissioners asked if property owners would have the option to turn down the pipeline on their land; and they were told by Waggoner, easements for the land would have to be negotiated, although taking the land by eminent domain is possible, but a last resort.   The FultonCounty board did receive confirmation that this is a natural gas distribution pipeline project, and not a plan to dig for the resource in this area.

 

                     The Fulton County Commissioners approved a contract with Brian Brothers Painting and Restoration LLC, for exterior painting of the courthouse, at a cost of $58,700.

 

Another contract was finalized with Schalk Brothers, Inc. for rehabilitation of a bridge on road 3B.

 

Following an executive session, the Fulton County Commissioners turned down a leave-of-absence request from a Job and Family Services employee.
