Gaz Update

Gaz Update

Things are heating up again, as fresh waves rob warriors of energy to fight,

You know how that feels,

Being whittled,
to nothing.

Notice of "Low Impact" (!) Ledge Removal and Blasting by VGS

This posting was in the Addison Independent on February 4th. A tiny notice in the pubic notices section. If you don't peruse this section of the paper, you may have missed it. Doesn't give much of a warning to those who may have questions. The select board then posted it on the town website on the 6th giving us all a whopping two days notice .
Please attend the meeting if you can and if you can't, call Beth Parent and give her your comments or questions.
A public information meeting will be held by Vermont Gas Systems to provide residents of Monkton with information about ledge removal and low impact rock drilling and blasting that may be necessary for a portion of the proposed natural gas pipeline route. Meeting to be held on Monday, February 8 at 4:30 p.m. at the Monkton Volunteer Fire Department (the Town of Monkton Fire Station), 3747 States Prison Road, Monkton, Vermont 05469. Please call Beth Parent at 802-865-1460 for additional information.

Additional Vermont Gas Informational Meeting Planned

Vermont Gas Informational Meeting update
Vermont Gas will schedule an additional informational meeting. From Beth Parent:
Thank you to the Selectboard and the Monkton residents who have expressed concern about the scheduling of our public info meeting about the low-level trench development blasting program associated with some parts of the pipeline construction. Vermont Gas will schedule an additional public information meeting (like the one that will be held on Monday Feb. 8th) in the next couple weeks. At least a week before the additional meeting, we will communicate with the Town the details of the time and place of the meeting. We hope to schedule the next meeting early this coming week. This is just the start of the public information process. There will also be a process for informing affected landowners near the proposed pipeline corridor by mail and otherwise, as set forth in the MoU between Monkton and Vermont Gas. Please feel free to email or call me with questions about any aspect of this activity. Thanks, Beth Parent, Vermont Gas (bparent@vermontgas.com or 578-2776)
Information provided here is for the convenience of the residents of Monkton. The Town of Monkton maintains an official website at monktonvt.com
