CORNWALL, Vt. (AP) -- Town officials in Cornwall, Vermont, want the state to stop a plan to build a pipeline through the town to a paper mill in New York.
The town selectboard recently sent a letter to Gov. Peter Shumlin condemning Vermont Gas Systems' plan for the pipeline to the International Paper Mill in Ticonderoga, N.Y.
Chairman Bruce Hiland told Vermont Public Radio (http://bit.ly/GRXCFz) that the company has been working with the town for almost a year but has failed to address its concerns. He dismisses claims that the pipeline will save money and jobs.
A spokesman for Vermont Gas Systems says the project is good for Vermont because it will bring natural gas to the Rutland area 15 years sooner than planned.
