Vermont town opposes pipeline project

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 ( 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.
