Swancreek Township Trustees said no to the NEXUS pipeline, but stopped short Dec. 8 of recommending where else it should go.
Trustees unanimously approved a resolution opposing the NEXUS or any future gas pipelines running through the township.
The vote met with applause from the approximately 75 residents of Swancreek and surrounding townships crowded into the meeting room at Fulton County Roads D and 5-2 near Delta.
“I’m happy,” said Liz Athaide-Victor, the township resident who is spearheading the opposition to the pipeline, after the meeting. “It’s the first step and we’ve got a lot of steps to go, but I’m happy.”
