Anti-Drillers in Green Not Done Fighting NEXUS Pipeline Despite City Accepting $7.5 Million Settlement

From the Akron Beacon Journal:
Disgruntled Green residents are trying to reverse the city’s settlement with Nexus by placing the issue before voters. 
A petition drive to obtain at least 735 signatures of valid Green voters is underway and must be filed by March 9 with the Summit County Board of Elections. If the signature drive is successful, the issue would be put before voters during an August special election or on the Nov. 6 general election ballot. 
The city had been fighting plans by Nexus to build a 36-inch, high-pressure natural gas pipeline through Green. 
Under the settlement, the city is getting $7.5 million in cash, around-the-clock monitoring of the pipeline and 20 acres west of Boettler Park that the city can use to extend a trail from the park to Koons or Thursby roads.
