Dear Friends and Natural Gas Supporters,
Later this week we have the chance to once again show that we understand the benefits of safe and affordable NG and that we support using it and developing it in all of our communities, not just our home communities. Leatherstocking LLC is moving ahead with their plans to bring affordable NG to parts of the Windsor community, including the Windsor schools along Rte 79. This will save Windsor School District money and save Windsor Landowners' taxes. The infrastructure Leatherstocking installs will add to the Windsor town's and Broome County's tax base to help reduce taxes of landowners not directly benefitting from the NG service provided along the initial route of the Leatherstocking line. Most importantly homes and business will be able to tap into the NG supply to enjoy a more affordable energy source! This sets and important precedent for all of our communities and all landowners need to come together in mutual support regardless of which town or county we live in. This is just such an opportunity to do so.
So please plan to attend both an informational forum/public comment hearing and a procedural conference.
