Residents Get Opportunity to Express Concerns Over Sunoco Pipeline
It was more than a year ago that Chris Tokarcik was first contacted by landmen working for Sunoco Logistics wanting to run a pipeline through his Suffield Township property.
While Tokarcik admits he would entertain the idea, he said landmen representing the petroleum company have been short on details, leading to his refusal to sign any agreements.
"Sunoco wants to pay us a one-time easement, but they will be making money on this as long as they want," Tokarcik said. "I don't really want it on my property."
He was among dozens of Portage County residents who attended a meeting Thursday to raise concerns and questions of Sunoco Logistics representatives in attendance. More than 30 residents crowded into a small commissioners' meeting room, while an overflow crowd of about 80 more were routed to a larger room, where they expected to watch the meeting via closed-circuit television. Technical difficulties defused that plan, however, and residents were told a recording of the meeting would be posted online at a later date.Read the whole article here.
