State Representative Joe Graves is urging residents to attend a hearing on a proposed natural gas pipeline which is planned to run through a portion of Genesee County.

In a news release, Graves said the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will be on hand to collect public input regarding the proposed ET Rover pipeline during the hearing. "Many residents have expressed concerns about how the proposed pipeline could damage their property of force property values down, and I urge them to bring these concerns to the attention of the federal officials" said Graves. He added "it is vital that FERC has information from everyone involved so that the agency can make an educated decision on whether to allow the pipeline to be built."

The hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, December 10th at the Holiday Inn Gateway Centre located to 5353 Gateway Centre in Flint. The hearing will begin at 6 p.m. However, representatives from Rover will be present beginning at 5 p.m. to answer questions.
